6" Fittonia, Red


Crazy pretty Red Fittonia is the ultimate plant for those of us who are crazy about red veining on plants (think Red Maranta, Jewel Orchid, etc.) The oval, rumply leaves of pine green have a rustling, parchment feel to them, arriving in pairs, but what gets you are the ravishing red veins. A lovely groundcover in dripping jungles, Red Fittonia creeps along the deep, wet leaf bed on the forest floor bathing in misty steam and speckled light, rooting all along the way in the rich, dark leaf litter. At home, Red loves to be near plants that show off her colors, like lime green ferns, and little palms and dark green foliage. In a terrarium the red sets off everything nearby, and the steamy atmosphere is just what she loves, and she'll root around as if she's back in the jungle.
