Hit A Nerve


Nerve plants (Fittonia sp.) are popular indoor plants with vividly colourful foliage.

There is a wide variety of nerve plants available, some having green leaves with cream or white veins, others with deep pink markings and some with stunning predominantly white foliage. They are perfect plants for small spaces, only reaching around 15 cm tall.

They are native to humid tropical forests in South America, so are well suited to growing in a terrarium where their vibrant foliage looks fantastic when grown together with green leafy plants such as ferns.
