Am I pet friendly?
Am I difficult to take care of?
Nerve Plants are very easy to care for.
Fittonia comes to us from the tropical rainforests of Columbia and Peru. As such, they prefer bright, indirect light.
Lower light can cause it to lose some of its vibrant color and growth will slow. Too much light can burn the leaves. So, Fittonia teaches us to listen to her needs. Your Fittonia loves water and to be consistently moist, but not soggy.
Tip: Fittonia make great terrarium plants, as terrariums mimic the moist environment. Pair with other small tropicals to create a balanced eco-system.
