Mosaic Plant or Nerve Plant (Fittonia albivenis) is a plant that consists of vein patterns that make this foliage look very striking and the combination with a white pot further enhances these patterns.

  • It is a low-growing creeper that is a perfect fit for terrariums or bottle gardens.
  • It typically grows to a height of 3 to 6 inches with a trailing spread of 12 to 18 inches.
  • Although the plant rarely flowers when grown as an indoor houseplant, it does occasionally bloom with insignificant reddish or yellowish-white spikes.
  • A great plant for a side/coffee table.
  • The plant makes an attractive gift for social visits.
LIGHT
  • It dislikes full sunlight, preferring bright, indirect sun, such as that offered by north-facing windows.
  • It will also thrive under fluorescent lights.
WATER
  • Keeping the plant appropriately moist can be a challenge.
  • Fittonia is prone to collapse if it’s allowed to dry out.
  • Although it will recover quickly if thoroughly watered, repeated fainting spells will eventually take their toll on the plant.
  • At the other extreme, Fittonia plants that are allowed to stagnate in water will develop yellowed, limp leaves.
SOIL
  • Fittonia grows well in standard potting soil with a peat-moss base. The soil should retain some moisture but should also drain well.
FERTILIZER
  • During its growing season, it should be fed weekly with a weak dose of liquid fertilizer formulated for tropical plants.
  • A 5-5-5 NPK fertilizer diluted to half strength is a good formulation.
