Fittonia is a decorative leafy beauty in the family Acanthaceae that can’t boast of either shade tolerance or fast growth. Flower growers consider it a problematic plant because of the high requirements for lighting, temperature, and air humidity. However, some enthusiasts take advantage of this whim, recognizing it as an ideal plant that can become an original element in a home interior.
Fittonia verschaffeltii, generally known by its other name, the Red Mosaic Plant, is a small ornamental deciduous plant with hard stems and oval green leaves with pink-red veins. Comfortable humidity and air temperature are the main factors for successful growth. The homeland of the herbaceous perennial plant F. verschaffeltii is South America, more specifically, Peru.
