Plant Features

The White Fittonia Nerve Plant, also known as Fittonia albivenis 'White', is a small, strikingly ornamental houseplant known for its distinctive foliage. This variety features dark green leaves crisscrossed with contrasting white veins, giving it a unique and eye-catching appearance. Fittonia plants, in general, are low-growing and spreading, making them excellent choices for terrariums, dish gardens, or as ground cover in larger plant arrangements.

Caring for a White Fittonia Nerve Plant involves some specific attention. Browning leaf edges or wilted leaves can indicate underwatering or low humidity. Yellowing leaves may suggest overwatering or poor drainage. Fittonias prefer high humidity and can benefit from regular misting or placement on a pebble tray. While they thrive in bright, indirect light, too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves. Fittonias can also become leggy if the light is too low, so finding a balance is important. Regularly check for common pests such as aphids or spider mites.
