Scientific Name: Fittonia 'Angel Wings'

Our Nerve Plant comes in a 12cm Nursery Pot. 

  • 12cm nursery pot
  • Likes bright, indirect light
  • Likes warmth and humidity
  • Plant level: Easy
  • Available potted in a 13cm Terracotta Pot set

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.

Water: Water moderately and let soil dry out a little between waterings
Light: Bright, indirect light is best. Will lose pink colouring in lower light.
Humidity: Flourishes in high humidity settings - mist as needed
Fertilize: Feed the Fittonia about every two weeks when it is actively growing with diluted fertilizer.
