Green Ozelot Swords are known for their colorful broad leaves. They make an excellent background and centerpiece plant in a large aquarium. They can grow emersed or submerged, with emersed plants sometimes producing small white flowers above the surface.
Ozelot sword plants are not picky when it comes to water parameters, but they do need good, nutrient-rich soil in order to thrive. CO2 injection is not necessary for these plants. Moderate light will keep Ozelet swords sprouting new leaves weekly, but the plant will do fine under a range of lighting conditions.
Ozelot swords propagate through side shoots that grow off of leaves. These can be removed and replanted if desired, or removed and discarded to control the spread of the plant.
