The fittonia or nerve plant is a stunning foliage plant and is gaining more and more popularity in recent years the world over because of its interesting appearance.
It was first discovered by famous botanists Sarah May Fitton and Elizabeth in the 19th century and is named after them. This plant is native to the South American rain forests and can primarily be found in dense forests of Peru.
Naturally, they grow under shades of rain forests trees and grow compact to the ground. Although they love moisture, waterlogging may adversely affect this plant and excessive watering causes it to decay. So as hobbyists we need to be cautious about this.
Even though there are many subspecies, most fittonias have oval-shaped leaves and have vivid colored leaf veins. Their veins and leaves come in most colors. For example pink, red, purple, green, peach, and so on. This coloration helps these plants in nature to ward off any plant-eating predators as vibrant colors indicate toxicity although this plant is not poisonous at all. How interesting, isn’t it! Under extremely lower light levels, it is found to reduce its color levels and kind of turn to green coloration. Bright indirect sunlight is recommended for hobbyists as a general rule in keeping these plants.
Fittonias can grow up to 20 cms in length and will form a bushy shape with numerous branches from the main stem.
Propagation of fittonias is primarily through stems. Even from a short stem of 1 cm, they can easily be grown. If you place a tiny leaf of this plant in soil too, it will propagate under the right circumstances. Leaf propagation and water propagation are popular for this plant, yet at Himadri Gardens, we use coco peat as the medium for propagation. We have had tried almost all methods and found this technique the best in our propagation experiments.
Fittonias are very hardy plants and are barely found to have any diseases. Root rot is only the problem we had faced. But the plant is prone to mosaic virus and leaf spots. If not overwatered, we can easily keep this beautiful plant without much trouble.
