Nerve plants, or Fittonia, boast intricate vein-patterned leaves in various hues. Compact and vibrant, they're perfect for tabletops and shelves, adding lushness to any space.

Thriving in bright, indirect sunlight, nerve plants prefer filtered or north-facing windows. They can tolerate low light but avoid direct sun to prevent leaf burn.

Light Requirements

Keep nerve plants moist but not waterlogged, watering when the top inch of soil is dry. Overwatering causes yellowed leaves and root rot, so water cautiously.

Watering Tips

Fertilize nerve plants weekly with diluted liquid fertilizer during spring and summer for healthy growth. Reduce fertilization in fall and winter to match slower growth.

Fertilizing Guidelines

Easily propagate nerve plants from stem-tip cuttings in peat-based soil. Maintain warmth and humidity for optimal growth, pinching stems for bushier foliage and removing flower buds.
