About Echinodorus ozelot
Echinodorus ozelot green grows either submersed or partially submersed. If conditions are less than favorable, it will still maintain its spots, but it will grow slower and smaller. After the initial planting, it requires very little maintenance, making it an excellent plant for new aquarists.
This plant propagates naturally with rhizomes or adventitious shoots that grow off of its leaves. It’s common for the plant to produce new leaves and corresponding plants on a weekly basis, so manual propagation isn’t necessary.
