    The Fittonia 'Pink' Story

    Where is it from?

    Who is the Fittonia 'Pink'?
    This creeping perennial is native to the tropical rainforests of South America, growing to a height of 3 to 6 inches with a spread of 12 to 18 inches.

    Is the Fittonia 'Pink' the right plant for me?

    Fittonia’s are exceptionally easy to care for, but they are also known for being dramatic. In order to keep the plant looking vivacious and full of soft leaves, an environment with higher humidity levels is required. Bathrooms, kitchens, are perfect for the nerve plant. If they start to dry out they will dramatically feint. Rest assured a good drink of water will have them back to normal in no time at all. 

    Pet Friendly: Yes! This is a pet-friendly plant. 

    Location Suggestions: Nerve Plants can work in a wide range of locations due to their adaptability to different lighting conditions. Place them in a terrarium, on a shelf, coffee table, or in a macrame hanger.
