Fittionia, or 'Nerve Plant' is a stunning, spreading evergreen houseplant with delicate but striking veined leaves. Which is exactly why these beauties continue to be one of our all time most popular plant and kokedama combos.
Although these plants rarely flower when grown as an indoor houseplant, they do occasionally bloom with reddish or yellowish-white spikes.
Loving a humid environment, Fittonia would be a perfect addition to your bathroom, but if not then a daily mist with water is a must!
Delivery and pickup options available at checkout.
Kokedama is roughly the size of a rockmelon.
Comes complete with a coaster, full care instructions and a gift box!
Other base options available in 'Accessories + Gifts' collection.
Loves medium & bright filtered light. Be sure to keep away from direct sun, as their delicate leaves can burn quickly.
Keep away from heating outlets, or windows that receive harsh summer sun.
Conditions with dry air is not a friend of Fittonia, so be sure to mist with water daily.
Can also tolerate some lower light areas.
Fittonia likes consistent and even moisture. Typically water weekly year round. If not kept in a humid environment (such as a bathroom), be sure to mist the leaves daily with a spray bottle of water. This will ensure your Fittonia's delicate leaves do not dry out.
HOW TO WATER
Fully submerge your kokedama in a bowl, sink or bucket. You may need to hold it under for a moment! Allow to soak for 10-15 minutes until kokedama feels heavy and full.
It is important to gently squeeze out excess water from the kokedama by pressing between two hands, on the sides towards the base. This will ensure your kokedama does not stay waterlogged which will prevent conditions such as root rot, fungus gnats and mould. As the moss and twine are natural products they are biodegradable and as such, squeezing out the excess water will prevent deterioration, prolonging the life of your kokedama.
