the rainforests of Peru. These beauties get their nicknames from their red, white, or pink veins that run through the leaves. In the wild, they can spread as beautiful ground cover, but indoors, they also make a striking houseplant.
LIGHT Fittonia prefer bright, indirect light—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 as it will scorch their leaves.
WATER Keep the soil moist at all times, but not soggy. Fittonias doesn't like their soil to dry out completely, and when it happens you will notice it will wilt quickly. If it happens, water it straight away and your plant will bounce back in one or two days.
