Bubble Pink Nerve Plant Overview

Fittonia albivenis 'Bubble Pink' is an evergreen perennial cultivar from the Acanthaceae family. In cultivation, it is usually grown indoors as a houseplant. It's grown for the strikingly pink-veined, pink maturing to green leaves and commonly known as a Bubble Pink Nerve Plant. This cultivar is a mat-forming, creeping plant with rooting stems. This little plant is perfect for shady spots! It's grown for the fantastic foliage. The Verschaffeltii Group of plants is distinguished by their pink or red leaf veins in comparison to the typical silver-white colouring seen in the Argyroneura Group of Fittonia. Coping well with low light, this houseplant may be placed in a shady spot out of direct sun. Check regularly if it needs watering, the easiest way to tell is by popping your finger in the soil and feeling for yourself! Humidity is important, if the air is dry, place your Fittonia on a pebble tray filled with water. Be sure the plant is sitting on the pebbles and not in the water.
