Nerve Plant (Fittonia)


Put some pep in your step with a Fittonia nerve plant!

This quirky little foliage friend is an easy way to take your decor from blah to bam!

It's sure to liven up any living space with its vibrant green, red and pink foliage.

Plus, it's a breeze to care for - so no need to get your nerves in a knot! (Seriously, how cute is this plant?)

Available in a Variety of colours 


Enjoying a nice bright indirect amount of light is critical to keep its bright vibrant colours. If left in the dark too long it will go dull and loose it's colour 


It is very important that this plant gets a good amount of humidity as it can dry out very quickly otherwise. It should be watered regularly to keep it damp- this doesn't mean drown the little darling. Take care not to over water is it could suffer root rot and other fungus pests.

Spectacular plants in excellent condition

Upon receiving my nerve plants I was immediately struck by their impeccable condition and the vibrant spectacle they presented. It’s no small feat for a plant, particularly one as delicate and detail-oriented as the nerve plant, to arrive in such pristine form.

Our two nerve plants featured vivid mosaics of rich green leaves crisply veined with white and pink, each leaf unfurling perfectly from the pot, a testament to the care taken in its cultivation and shipment.

The condition of the plants upon arrival were nothing short of excellent. The soil was moist but not waterlogged, indicating they were watered just before shipping. There were no signs of wilting or stress on the leaves, and the plants stood proud and perky, immediately brightening up our indoor space.

What’s particularly commendable is how well the nerve plants have adapted to their new environment. Often, plants take time to adjust to new settings, showing signs of stress such as drooping leaves or colour loss. However, these nerve plants seemed to have been prepped to perfection, ensuring a seamless transition with minimal adjustment needed.

Both plants are being gifted in the next few weeks in purpose purchased pots, and we are thrilled that we will be able to give a gift of such gorgeous plants thanks to Plant Daddy!

Super easy process! Shipped amazingly and with care and plants came looking great (even after being in a box for a week!)

The best Delivery ever

Considering the plants were posted from Sydney to arrive in Brisbane, they arrived in the absolute best condition anyone could ask for. I was a bit sceptical on how they would arrive, but I was ABSOLUTELY blown away by how much love and care went into the packaging of the plants and they are thriving in their new home.
When I find a few more spots I will be doing another order.
Thank you for my beautiful plants and making sure they arrived safely.
