Fittonia 'Nerve Plant' (White)
A popular trailing houseplant, the nerve plant loves humidity. Native to Peru, these plants are found under the canopy of other plants so they like shady spots in the home. Too much sunlight can bleach the leaves and fade their color in the veins. This plant appreciates regular watering. Keep the soil moist and misting is a must! When the leaves become limp and floppy, that’s a sign that you need to water. If you think it’s the end of the road with this plant, don’t give up so easily! After giving them water, they will perk up again. You can propagate this plant by cutting the stem and placing it in water until the roots grow, Then place back in soil and watch it grow!
