Fittonia verschaffeltii, aka Red Nerve Plant, is a slightly finicky and temperamental plant but will reward your work with beautiful red tinted foliage. 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. 

Available in the following packaging based on your preference:

  • Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 2-inch  pot can be placed within another pot or repotted when ready. 
  • Olympia Planter - Marble looking grey and white porcelain planter raised on a metal planter. Approximately 4” opening with drainage hole. 
  • Victoria 4" - Faces all around. An elegant pot for an elegant plant. Black matte and white inside porcelain with rubber feet and drainage hole. Approximately 4" x 4".
