Fittonia 'Pink Ruby Lime'

£12.50

Fittonia's, also known as mosaic plants, are an evergreen perennial with beautifully delicate veined leaves. They are slow growers and love high humidity so are great for terrariums as well as regular houseplants.  The Fittonia 'Pink Ruby Lime' have beautiful vibrant pink veins. 

Light: Fittonia's are more tolerant of the shadier spots in your house, but will also thrive in bright indirect light too. 

Watering: You will want to water about once a week, keeping your Fittonia's soil damp, but not soaking wet.

Soil: Fittonia's like regular peat-free potting mix. If making your own it should be equal parts potting soil, sand and peat-free compost.

Temperature: Fittonia's prefer temperatures between 21ºC and 26ºC. They also love to be humid, so there are a few different ways you can keep your Fittonia happy - a quick mist spray in the morning, group it close to other plants, or equally you can put it on a plate of stones or pebbles which will really help the humidity levels. 

Repotting: Repotting not required, but you will want to give your Fittonia fresh soil every 2 years. 

Plant Care Level: Intermediate
