How to grow Nerve Plant?
As the Fittonia plant is native to tropical rain forest, it love to be in similar conditions of rain forest. however, don't worry. as long as you follow a few guidelines, you will see your fittonia growing full of health on your home.
- Light : Fittonia can grow in wide range of light conditions from bright filtered light to shady spot. but low light can cause these plants to revert to green or losing the veins color, and as they would be flourish on the bright spot, so if its possible give them somewhere has lots of filtered light through window.
- Temperature : It loves to be in warm to high temperatures. Generally indoor climate will work well for the plant. but as this plant cannot stand frost, if you grow outdoors, try to put them in during the cooler month.
- Water : The soil should always remain moist due to the tropical nature. We would say around 1 ~2 times watering in a week will be fine but try to keep the soil moist and damp. However, definitely do not let them sit on water or in very wet soil.
- Fertilizer : during the warmer season, give them a slow release fertilizer every 4 weeks to balancing the nutrient but in the winter time, once in 2-3 months is fine.

How to decorate Home with Fittonia Snow Anne?
Fittonia Snow Anne has eye catching foliage with deep green edge, white pattern.. and to maximize this character, what I suggest is potting up with white or black simple design pot to maximizing the contrast effect.
as the plant itself grows small height, it will go very well in a pot and put on a coffee table or shelve, put along the window. on the other hand, some people plant together with other plant, put in a hanging basket or even use of Terrarium.
