The Ozelot swordplant is a colourful, vigorously growing Echinodorus hybrid. It was bred by Hans Barth (Dessau, Germany) in the early 1990s and remains very popular in the aquarium hobby. Characteristic for this cultivar are narrowly elliptic submerged leaves that are brownish-red with dark red spots during sprouting. Older leaves keep their dark spot pattern but their basic colour changes to dark olive. The leaf rosette is about 20-50 cm tall and 20-40 cm wide.

Echinodorus 'Ozelot is also recommendable for aquarium beginners, but as well as other swordplants, it prefers nutrient-rich bottom and at least moderate lighting.

With its maximum height of about 50 cm, The Ozelot swordplant is best placed as solitary plant or small, loose group in the midground to background of rather large tanks.
