Ideally placed in moderate to bright shade, Fittonia can even tolerate low shade thanks to their native growing habitat on rainforest floors which also makes them a great choice for terrariums. Water your Fittonia when the top quarter of the soil is dry or they start to feel a little soft and droop a little.
"Longer stems with gaps between the leaves?
Fittonia can tolerate quite low light but they’ll thrive in bright shade, so move it to a brighter spot for more compact growth - just be sure to avoid direct sunlight!
Suddenly very sad and droopy? Fittonia can be divas when they’re thirsty, if the soil feels dry give it a good drink and it should perk up quickly!"
