Fittonia
LIGHT
Your Fittonia prefers bright, indirect light. Lower light can cause it to lose some of its vibrant color and growth will slow. Too much light can burn the leaves. 

WATER
Your Fittonia loves water and to be consistently moist, but not soggy. Water thoroughly when the top 25% of soil is dry. If you let your Fittonia dry out too much, it will let you know with limp leaves. Not to worry! After a thorough watering, the leaves should soon perk up. 

TEMPERATURE
Your Fittonia will thrive in average room temperatures between 65-80 degrees. Avoid cold drafts and direct airflow from heaters in the winter months.

HUMIDITY
Average household humidity is acceptable, but your Fittonia will appreciate higher humidity levels. You can boost the humidity with frequent misting, placing a humidifier nearby, or using a pebble tray. Another way to increase relative humidity is to group several humidity-loving plants together in a small area, creating a micro-climate. 

FOOD
Feed every month from spring through the end of summer with a general houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. 

TOXICITY
FIttonia are non-toxic and pet-friendly! 

ADDITIONAL CARE
Because your Fittonia loves humidity, it will thrive in a terrarium! To make a terrarium, get a glass jar with or without a lid, place a layer of gravel or rocks, and add soil. Plant your Fittonia and add more soil around the plant, watering slightly. Add multiple plants if space in your vessel allows. Terrariums hold humidity very well–your Fittonia won’t have to be watered as often as if it were planted in a pot.
