HousePlant with Red Veins


My friend got me this cute little plant (from the supermarket haha) for Christmas this year 🙂 I really would like to know it’s species and how to take care of it properly! I’ve previously owned plants but they… Kinda died… And I want to avoid another death on my hands….

Thank you!

Hi Asterly,

Red-Veined Fittonia or Nerve Plant

Your plant is called a Fittonia-Red Vein or Nerve Plant. There are complete care instructions for a Fittonia in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.
