Grown for their attractively patterned foliage that comes in a variety of colours, Fittonias are low-growing creepers, which in time, can be used to trail over the edges of a shelf or cabinet. The nerve plant, or Fittonia argyroneura, from the Acanthaceae (Acanthus) family, is a tropically found plant with striking leaves of pink and green, white and green, or green and red. Foliage is primarily olive green with veining taking on the alternate hue. This little beauty does well in terrariums, hanging baskets, dish gardens or even as a ground cover in the right climate. The foliage is low growing and trailing with oval-shaped leaves on rooting mat forming stems.

As the nerve plant originates in a tropical setting, it flourishes within a high humidity environment. Misting may be required to maintain humid-like conditions. Fittonia nerve plant likes well drained moist soil, but not too wet. Water moderately and let growing nerve plants dry out between waterings. Use room temperature water on the plant to avoid shock. The Fittonia nerve plant tolerates bright light to shade conditions but will truly flourish with bright, indirect light. Low light exposure will cause these plants to revert to green, losing the veins vibrant splashes of color. Growing nerve plants should be placed in a warm area, avoiding drafts which will shock the plant just as water that is too cold or hot. Think rain forest conditions and treat your Fittonia nerve houseplants accordingly.

All the Fittonias in this collection are all un-named and un-labelled, so its a bit of a lucky dip as to what you will receive, however if you order the 5-pack (5 × 8.5cm pots), we will send you as many different ones as possible, making sure that you won't receive any more than two of the same type.

Please note that the pots in the photograph are not supplied with the plants (which are sent out in a brown plastic pots). They do, however, make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.
