Description

Common Name: Fittonia Albivenis, Silver Fittonia, Nerve Plant

Fittonia Albivenis is a creeping, evergreen perennial that comes from tropical rainforests in South America. Easily identified by its striking pattern, Fittonia Albivenis showcases bold white veins against its dark green leaves that make for a unique plant with attractive looks. Fittonia is generally easy-going and can be used in terrarium-like setups such as vivariums and paludariums. This plant should not be submerged fully in water, but it will enjoy relatively high humidity and misting on its leaves. 

Notes:

  • This is not an aquarium plant. Submerging it completely will result in the death of this plant.
  • Fittonia works well in terrarium-like setups and should be partially shaded.
  • Remove the cotton surrounding the roots and plant into quality soil. For instructions on how to properly prep aquarium plants, click here.
  • Yellowing of leaves indicates overwatering.
  • Please research appropriately to ensure your plant thrives.
