Fittonia albivenis (Argyroneura Group)
This evergreen perennial plant group is native to South America, where they are found in tropical rainforest habitats. The Argyroneura Group has pale leaves, with silver-white veins. They are mat-forming, creeping plants with rooting stems and strikingly-veined and often colourful foliage. Flowers are white and non-showy. In cultivation, they are usually grown under glass as houseplants but can be used as groundcover in mild climates.
Can be done from spring until summer.
In spring take tip cuttings with 3 or 4 pairs of leaves.
For indoor containers, use a loam based potting compost.
