Fittonia Variety 12cm
Fittonia, which is known for its vein-like leaves which branch out from the centre towards the tip. These lines are connected with finer lines, like arteries, placed at intervals creating an irregular, angled grid on the surface of the leaf. This pattern can look similar to a mosaic pattern.
All 15 species of Fittonia vary in colour and although the leaves are almost always green, the lines on them can differ from white to a bright pink. All varieties have soft hairs on the stems and can produce small flowers which are mainly white in colour. This plant can be grown in a pot, yet is grown more successfully in a terrarium.
