Fittonia love to be consistently moist, but not soggy. Water thoroughly when the top 2 to 3 inches of soil is dry. If you let your Fittonia dry out too much, it will let you know with limp leaves; however, after a thorough watering the leaves will perk up again.
Fittonia prefer bright, indirect light. Lower light can cause it to lose some of its vibrant color and growth will slow. Too much light can burn the leaves.
Average household warmth and humidity levels will be fine, but Fittonia can tolerate higher humidity levels too.
