Pink Fittonia – 4″ pot
Fittonia is a spreading evergreen perennial with delicately veined, deep green leaves. Fittonia is usually grown as a houseplant, but it can grow in the landscape in the correct zones. Fittonia generally grows to a height of 5 to 6 inches with trailing vines up to 18 inches.
Weight 1 lbs
Fittonia also known as: Nerve Plant, or Mosaic Plant
Fittonia is slightly temperamental, it is very prone to wilting when it dries out. Luckily, it generally perks right up as soon as it is watered properly. It thrives in high humidity environments, making it a perfect terrarium plant.
Water: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between watering. If the plant stays too wet the leaves will yellow and become limp.
Humidity: Nerve plants prefer humid conditions similar to those found in the rainforest.
Temperature: Nerve plants thrives at temperatures around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. But will tolerate ranges from the low 60s to low 80s.
Fertilizer: During growing season, feed plants with a half strength liquid fertilizer formulated for tropical plants.
Soil: Any potting soil mix in a standard pot with bottom drainage holes will work.
Light: Fittonia dislikes full sunlight. It prefers bright, but INDIRECT sunlight, such as in front of north facing windows. It will also do well under fluorescent lighting. Too little light will cause the plant to lose its vein color.
Heat packs are available to purchase during the winter months as an add on item. You need to add on a heat pack if you live in an area where the temps are below 50 degrees consistently. You will need one heat pack per box. If you order multiple plants you may need to purchase more than one heat pack.
It is the customer’s responsibility to check weather conditions and be aware of extreme conditions that may negatively impact their order. Cold damage due to customers not purchasing the heat pack option will be excluded from the replacement guarantee. Please be sure to leave a note with your USPS mail person for proper placement of packages to avoid prolonged temperature exposure.
We ship all of our plants via USPS. We prep our orders on Monday and ship on Tuesday and Wednesday every week. If you place an order after Monday at 9 AM Eastern time, it will not ship out until the following week. We take extreme care when packaging and shipping our plants to ensure you receive a happy, healthy plant.
Plants are shipped in a 4” nursery pot with soil. Any decorative pots seen in the pictures are not included.
The plant in the picture is not the exact same plant that you will receive unless otherwise stated in the listing. However, your plant will be very similar to the one pictured. It will be in the same size pot, with the same number of cuttings per pot.
We are currently only able to ship within the U.S. This does include Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Alaska and Guam.
Please track your order. We are not liable if your plant is severely damaged or dies from being left sitting in the hot or cold outside after it is delivered. Inspect your order upon arrival and communicate any discrepancies within 48 hours of receiving the plant, by sending us a message with a description of the problem along with as many pictures as possible. A few damaged/broken off leaves is completely normal during the shipping process. So, don’t panic.
As soon as you receive your package, please take the plant out of the box, and give it some water if the soil is dry. It is normal for plants to look limp and dry or have a few yellow leaves as they are stressed during transit. It may take one to two weeks for the plants to perk up as they acclimate to their new environment.
Please do not immediately repot your plant. It is stressed from traveling and needs at least two weeks to recover and acclimate to its new home.
We do not offer returns or exchanges once the plants have shipped.
