Fittonia Pink Description

Fittonia Pink plants are compact and typically used as tabletop plants or in terrariums where their detailed leaf patterns can be appreciated up close. The leaves are oval-shaped and deeply veined, creating a dramatic contrast against the rich green leaf surface. Fittonia plants tend to spread out and stay low, making them excellent for filling spaces in containers or as part of a larger indoor garden display.

Care Plan for Fittonia Pink

Light: This plant thrives in moderate to bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can cause the vibrant pink coloration to fade and the plant to become leggy. A location near a window with filtered light or using sheer curtains to diffuse direct sunlight is ideal.

Watering: Fittonia Pink prefers consistently moist soil but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Be cautious of overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. Using a pot with good drainage can help prevent excess water buildup.

Humidity: High humidity is crucial for the Fittonia Pink, mimicking its native tropical environment. Regular misting, a humidifier nearby, or placing the plant on a pebble tray with water can help maintain the humidity levels it needs to thrive.

Temperature: Keep temperatures between 60-80°F (16-27°C). Avoid drafts and sudden temperature changes, which can stress the plant and affect its growth.

Child and Pet Safety: Fittonia Pink is non-toxic and safe for both pets and children, making it a wonderful addition to any family home.

General Tips: Fertilize every month during the growing season with a half-strength balanced liquid fertilizer to support growth. Regularly pinch back the tips of the plant to encourage a bushier growth pattern and prevent it from becoming leggy. Clean the leaves occasionally to remove dust and ensure the plant can effectively photosynthesize.
