£13.99

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

The nerve plant, or Fittonia, is an eye-catching houseplant that is popular for use in hanging baskets, container gardens, and terrariums. Since they are native to tropical rainforests, nerve plants prefer conditions similar to the rainforest floor.

Water

If you’re going to love your fittonia, you’re going to have to love watering it. Although it will ‘faint,’ or wilt, when it’s feeling even a little bit thirsty, you don’t want to get in the habit of letting it do that before you water it.

Light

Fittonia prefer bright, indirect light—think: north- or east-facing windows—or light through a filtered curtain (perhaps a few feet away from a sunny window). Never place this plant in direct sun.

The Tradescantia Nanouk is an absolutely gorgeous plant known for its bright green, purple/pink, fuzzy-ish leaves

To keep soil evenly moist, a regular watering schedule is best. Water until water drains through the bottom of the pot, taking care that your plant won't sit in water. Tradescantia thrives in humidity and loves a regular misting.

Bright, indirect light is best for the Tradescantia Nanouk, however, I am growing mine in low light. With lower light, the bright colours will also fade a little, so keep that in mind.
