Growing Mosaic Plant (Fittonia)

Mosaic Plant, also called Nerve Plant, thrives at room temperature and looks best as a neat mound. Pinch roving stems occasionally to keep your plant looking tidy.

Light: Place plants in an east- or shaded west-facing window.

Watering: Water when the top of the potting mix is dry to the touch.

Humidity: Mosaic Plant appreciates high humidity, which can be provided by standing the plants on trays of moist pebbles, or by using one of our humiditrays.

Fertilizer: When plants are in active growth from spring through summer, use a balanced (20-20-20) houseplant fertilizer monthly, diluted to half strength.
