Red Ozelot Sword is a fantastic beginner plant for those just getting into plants. Red Ozelot Sword grows at a decent pace, and it doesn't require any special lighting conditions. Of course, in higher light, the colors will really come out. However, even under low light, it will maintain some of its colorations.
Just like other Swords, Red Ozelot Sword will do well in either a nutrient rich substrate or the use of root tabs to give it some nutrients at its roots.
