Fittonia, also known as nerve plant or mosaic plant, is a popular choice for terrariums due to its small size and attractive foliage. Here are some tips on how to care for Fittonia in a terrarium:

  • Lighting: Fittonia prefers bright, indirect light. Place your terrarium in a well-lit area, but avoid direct sunlight which can scorch the delicate leaves.

  • Soil: Use a well-draining soil mix that is rich in organic matter. The ideal mix should consist of a combination of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark.

  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Fittonia thrives in high humidity, so mist the plant regularly.

  • Temperature: Keep the terrarium in a warm, humid environment with temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C).

  • Fertilizer: Use a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer).

  • Pruning: Fittonia is a slow-growing plant and doesn't require much pruning. However, if the plant becomes too large for the terrarium, you can trim back the leaves as needed.

Overall, Fittonia is a low-maintenance plant that can add a unique touch to your terrarium. With proper care, it can thrive and bring joy to your indoor garden.
