The Nerve Plant gets its name from the variety of veins or 'nerves' running through each leaf. As an easy care plant, the Nerve Plant makes a great gift or starter plant.
The trailing nature of the plant can lead to the plant looking a little 'leggy' or scraggly. To create a fuller, bushier plant, prune the tips of the Nerve Plant.
This is a great counter top plant for bathrooms or kitchens, where the humidity level is naturally high. Looks great in sets of 2 or 3 as well, as a duo or trio.
Also available potted in a 13cm Terracotta Pot with matching drip tray.
Follow these instructions to keep your Nerve Plant healthy and happy.
