Fittonia

Your Fittonia can tolerate a range of lighting conditions and like to be kept moist. Fittonias will thrive in a terrarium due to high moisture levels! They have a unique compact size combined with a striking leaf pattern. 

 

Easy Care Facts:

Lighting:

bright, indirect light

Lower light can cause it to lose some of its vibrant color and growth will slow, but direct, full light can damage the leaves. 

Water:

With this plant, don't be shy with the humidity. Add water when only a quarter of the soil is dry. The leaves will start to droop when it needs water, and will perk up once watered.

Fertilizing:

Add fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength about every four weeks during the warm months of the year. 

Humidity:

Fittonias will thrive in high humidity. Place a humidifier near or use a pebble tray. It is suggested to place near other high humidity loving plants near each other to create a micro-climate that they grown in naturally. 

Temperature:

average room temperatures between 65-80 degrees; avoid cold drafts & heat vents

Toxicity:

FIttonia are non-toxic to your pets.
