Fittonia is a lovely plant with delicately veined, deep green leaves. Although the most popular vein color is silvery white, you can also readily find fittonia with veins in pink, white, and green.
The Fittonia comes in a plastic nursery pot as standard. You can add on a pot of your choice if you would like one; the Fittonia works well in one of our hand thrown stoneware pots of a Bergs Julie pot in terracotta or grey.
You can very easily propogate your fittonia by division.
Plant care instructions and tips:
Water when the top of your Fittonia’s soil has dried out. Don’t wait too long! Watering too much can lead to root rot, but forgetting to water too long won’t be appreciated either.
To further imitate tropical rainforest conditions, you may have to mist your Fittonia regularly. Keeping it in a terrarium and/or using a humidity tray consisting of pebbles and a layer of water can really help maintain the proper humidity so you don’t have to mist as often.
