Dark Green Nervy

Dark Green Nervy


Grown as a houseplant, Nervy is also known as a Nerve Plant, and her bottanical name is Fittonia. She is a creeping, spreading evergreen with delicately veined, deep-green leaves.


All in all, Nervy is pretty low maintenance, although she does like to stay humid, so get ready to give her a regular misting, but this also makes Nervy the perfect fit for terrariums or bottle gardens.


She typically grows to a height of 7 to 15 cm with a trailing spread of 25 to 40 cm.
