Plant Care – Fittonia Green
Light: Place your Fittonia Green under bright and indirect sunlight, and do avoid direct sunlight because it will cause its leaves to scorch and dry up. Too little sunlight will cause its leaves to lose their vibrant colours and slow down their growth.
Water: Water your Fittonia thoroughly and make sure that the soil is evenly moist. Water your plant whenever the top inch of the soil is dry to the touch, and make sure to water till some water flows through the pot’s drainage holes. Fittonias are prone to limping when underwatered, however, thorough watering will bring it back to life.
Soil: The Fittonia thrives in well-aerated soil that can retain moisture and also drain water well.
Humidity Requirement: Medium To High
