Each leaf of Fittonia Green is perfectly shaped with beautiful white veins that run across the dark green leaf, naming it the names Nerve Plant and Silver Net Plant.

Fittonia Albivenis Plant care-
Light-: Fittonia prefers 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.
Water -: Your Fittonia loves water and to be consistently moist, but not soggy. Water thoroughly when the top 50% of soil is dry. If you let your Fittonia dry out too much, it will let you know with limp leaves.
Humidity -: Fittonia will appreciate higher humidity levels.
Fertilizer-: Feed every month in spring and summer with a general houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. No fertilizer is needed during the fall and winter months when growth naturally slows.
Propagation- Fittonia propagates readily from leaf-tip cuttings. To propagate the plant, these rooted stem pieces may be divided or tip cuttings may be taken to create new Fittonia nerve houseplants.
