White fittonia, also known as Fittonia albivenis, is a small tropical plant that is native to Peru. It is a member of the Acanthaceae family and is known for its beautiful, variegated leaves.
The leaves of the white fittonia are typically small, with a bright green background and white veins that give the plant its distinctive appearance. This plant is often grown as a houseplant and is prized for its striking foliage.
White fittonia requires bright, indirect light and moderate humidity to thrive. It prefers well-draining soil and should be watered regularly, but not overwatered. This plant is sensitive to cold temperatures, so it should be kept in a warm, sheltered location.
Fittonia albivenis, aka Nerve Plant, is a slightly finicky and temperamental plant but will reward your work with beautiful foliage displays. She makes for a beautiful houseplant that can do well in terrariums, planter pots, or hanging baskets. Works great in low-light settings. We call her the "drama queen" of the plant world because she is known for fainting and the smallest environmental instability but quickly pops back when given water, light, or the right temperature.
