Fittonia 'White Nerve Plant' Description

The Fittonia 'White Nerve Plant' features small, oval leaves that are densely packed with crisp white veins, creating a sharp contrast against the dark green leaf surfaces. The plant has a compact, spreading growth habit, which makes it an ideal choice for terrariums, small pots, or as part of a mixed container where its detailed foliage can be appreciated up close.

Care Plan for Fittonia 'White Nerve Plant'

Light: This plant thrives under bright, indirect light but can also adapt to medium light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves, and very low light, which may cause the vibrant veining to fade and the plant to become leggy.

Watering: The Fittonia 'White Nerve Plant' prefers consistently moist soil. Water it when the top inch of soil begins to feel dry to the touch, ensuring the soil remains damp but not waterlogged. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so good drainage is essential.

Humidity: High humidity levels are crucial for keeping this plant healthy, as it originates from tropical environments. You can increase humidity around the plant using a humidifier, misting regularly, or placing it on a pebble tray filled with water.

Temperature: Ideal temperatures for this Fittonia are between 60-75°F (16-24°C). It is sensitive to cold drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations, so keep it away from drafty windows and exterior doors during cooler months.

Child and Pet Safety: The Fittonia 'White Nerve Plant' is non-toxic and safe for both children and pets, making it an excellent choice for a family household.

General Tips: Fertilize every month during the growing season with a half-strength balanced liquid fertilizer to promote healthy growth. Regular pruning can help maintain a bushy and dense form, encouraging new growth and preventing the plant from becoming too leggy. Gently clean the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust and enhance photosynthesis.
