The leaves of a Fittonia are well know for their brightly coloured veins of red, pink or white. Keep this plant in bright, indirect sunlight to avoid burns. Fittonia tend to be dramatic, with drooping leaves when dry that quickly bounce back once properly watered. When repotting, we reccomend using our All Purpose Potting Mix.
