Fittonia albivenis is a species of flowering plant in the family Acanthaceae, native to the rainforests of Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and northern Brazil. It is notable for its dark green foliage with strongly contrasting white or red veins. It is commonly called nerve plant or mosaic plant.
Fittonia albivenis is a creeping evergreen perennial growing to 15 cm [6 in] high, with lush green leaves with accented veins of white to deep pink and a short fuzz covering its stems. Flowers are small with a white to off-white color.
This plant is best kept in a moist area with mild sunlight and temperatures above 55 °F [13 °C]. It must be watered regularly. Without water for a few days, it is known to “faint” but is easily revived with a quick watering and resumes its healthiness.
