Native to Peru and other South American countries. Fittonia typically grows to a height of 3 to 6 inches with a trailing spread of 12 to 18 inches. The oval-shaped leaves are typically a lush olive green with a fine network of contrasting, colorful veins. Different species within the genus produce different vein colors and patterns.

As a tropical plant that naturally grows in the humid bright shade of tropical forests, this plant prefers similar conditions when grown as a houseplant. It dislikes full sunlight, preferring bright, indirect sun, such as that offered by north-facing windows. It will also thrive under fluorescent lights.

Fittonia grows well in standard potting soil with a peat-moss base. The soil should retain some moisture but should also drain well. The plant needs to be kept constantly moist with a high level of ambient humidity provided by frequent misting or by growing it in a tray filled with pebbles and water. 

It thrives at temperatures around 70 F. but will tolerate a range from the low 60s to low 80s. During its growing season, nerve plants should be fed weekly with a weak dose of liquid fertilizer formulated for tropical plants.
