Fittonia Albivenis is a beautiful terrestrial plant that is best known for its striking foliage and prominent leaf vein pattern. Fittonia are also a popular house plant choice and are equally known for their dramatic behavior when sudden changes in environment occur. This dramatic behavior may appear in the form of extreme droopiness and wilted leaves, causing many to believe their plant is a goner. However, in most cases, a thorough water and the addition of a humidity dome for a day or two and your Fittonia will look like a brand-new plant.

Small to medium in size, Fittonia Albivenis has a horizontal, creeping growth pattern making it great for ground coverage. Fittonia plants do best when kept in bright, indirect light or in an area with dappled sunlight and decent humidity levels, making it a suitable choice for wabi-kusa style planted setups or terrarium  enclosures. Propagation is simple and can be done through stem cuttings.
Fittonia Albivenis is NOT an aquarium plant. Submerging this plant in an aquarium will kill it!
