The Nerve Plant, scientifically known as Fittonia albivenis, is a popular houseplant celebrated for its stunning, intricately veined leaves. These tropical beauties, native to the rainforests of South America, bring a touch of elegance and vibrancy to any indoor space. With proper care, you can enjoy the lush foliage of Nerve Plants year-round. Here's everything you need to know to keep your Nerve Plant healthy and flourishing.


Nerve Plants thrive in bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch their delicate leaves, so it's best to place them near a north or east-facing window where they can enjoy filtered light. They can tolerate lower light conditions, but their growth may slow, and their vibrant colors might fade.


Nerve Plants prefer consistently moist soil but are sensitive to overwatering. Water them thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, ensuring excess water drains away to prevent root rot. They enjoy high humidity, so misting the leaves regularly or placing the pot on a humidity tray can help maintain the moisture they crave. During winter, reduce watering frequency slightly to match the plant's slower growth rate.
