Silver Nerved Fittonia

Posted by Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 17 July 2018 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

The Fittonia Plant (Nerve Plant/Mosaic Plant) is native to the tropical rainforests of Central and South America. It gets its nicknames, Nerve Plant or Mosaic Plant, because of the distinct veined appearance of its beautiful ornamental leaves. These veins are always a different color than the rest of the leaf and can be white, pink or silver. The leaves of a Fittonia are about 2” long, green in color, and are attached to fuzzy stems.
