Echinodorus ‘Ozelot’ is a decorative hybrid between Echinodorus schluteri ‘Leopard’ and Echinodorus ‘Barthii’. 20-50 cm tall and a 20-40 cm wide rosette.
Naturally, it is the elliptical black spots on the red-brown leaves that have given this plant the name ‘Ozelot’. The spots are darkest on the youngest leaves, and unlike many other spotted Echinodorus, ‘Ozelot’ retains its spots even at low light intensity.
It is an undemanding and good plant for beginners.
