The Fittionia is a spreading evergreen perennial with delicately veined, deep-green leaves. Although the most popular vein color is silvery-white, you can also readily find varieties with veins in red, pink, white, and green.

Light

Fittonias prefer bright, indirect light. Low light can cause the foliage to loose some of its color and too much sunlight can scorch the leaves.

Water

FFittonias love to stay consistently moist. Water thoroughly when the top 50% of soil is dry. If you let your ittonia dry out too much you will notice limp leaves. But don't worry, once you give your plant a thorough watering the leaves will perk right up.

   Common Problems Q&A

Why are my leaves limp and droopy?

The most common reason Fittonias experience droopy leaves is due to a lack of water. Give your plant a thorough watering and you should notice the leaves perk up!

Why are my leaves turning yellow?

Yellow leaves are likely due to overwatering. Make sure you are using a pot with drainage holes to avoid soggy soil.

Why are my leaves dropping?

This is usually the result of cold temperatures or drafts. be sure to move your Fittonia away from direct airflow from heaters during the winter months.
