Fittonia 'Red'

$ 15.00 Sold Out
Size: 3" Pot
Showcasing its striking color, Fittonia 'Red' is a captivating houseplant native to the tropical rainforests of South America. Its leaves present a vibrant array of deep red veins, set against a contrasting backdrop of lush green. The intricately patterned leaves are further adorned with a unique texture, resembling the scales of a reptile, which adds an extra layer of interest to this already visually arresting plant. In terms of size, Fittonia 'Red' will typically reach around 6 to 12 inches in height and width, but its propensity for lateral growth can see it spread even further, given the right conditions. When situated in a terrarium or a well-drained pot, Fittonia 'Red' will begin to form a dense carpet of foliage, making it an excellent choice for ground cover in miniature gardens. However, when housed in a hanging basket or elevated pot, it will create a stunning "cascading" effect as its leaves spill over the edges, adding a dramatic touch to your indoor plant collection. Though it may seem like a slow grower initially, with a little patience and the right care, Fittonia 'Red' will reward you with an impressive spread of its uniquely patterned foliage. In addition, this plant has a tendency to produce small, insignificant flowers, although its main appeal lies in its vibrant, colorful leaves. As a tropical plant, Fittonia 'Red' prefers a warm, humid environment and indirect light, making it a great addition to bathrooms or kitchens where these conditions can be easily met. The plant's tropical origins also mean that it is somewhat sensitive to changes in temperature and light, so be sure to keep it away from drafty windows or direct sunlight. Enhancing the drama already brought on by its leaves, Fittonia 'Red' may occasionally produce small, white or yellow flowers. However, these are relatively rare and their appearance is not a reliable indicator of the plant's overall health. Instead, focus on maintaining the plant's vibrant leaf color and dense foliage as signs of its well-being. With its stunning red-veined leaves and easy care requirements, Fittonia 'Red' is a versatile and eye-catching addition to any indoor garden. Whether you're a seasoned houseplant collector or a beginner looking to add a splash of color to your home, this beautiful plant is sure to impress.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
