Plant profile: Nerve plant

HeyLadySpring Garden Journal Photography

I'm really in love with this Nerve plant and the silver pail I found at Dapitan Arcade. (^-^)v I plan to give a similar one as housewarming present to my neighbors ala Japanese greeting style. I find it weird that we have lived across the hall with each other for a month and I still haven't greeted them properly.


*This one is a Fittonia argyroneura nana in pink color (also comes in white). It's the dwarf version and a lot easier to keep alive in a room setting. It has been very forgiving. It hasn't died on me yet. *laughs* I wish it would be more bushier though and with less leggy stems. I'm currently researching on this.

Secrets to Success: Partially shaded spot and average warmth. Water liberally but don't over water. Mist leaves.

My technique: I usually water it about once a week or once every two weeks. This is only because my pot doesn't have a drainage hole. I mist the leaves every morning.

I plan to buy a second plant of this color before I try my hand on the White-veined one.
