Product Details

Quick Care Guide

Water Moderately

This plant can tolerate a drier growing medium, but will do well if you water it regularly. Check that the growing medium is about halfway dry, then water thoroughly.

 Medium Light

This plant will benefit from being in a location with bright, indirect light. Depending on your conditions, a window-lit spot or one that offers a few hours of direct morning sunlight will be appreciated.

Moderate Humidity

This plant will fare decently in normal household humidity (50 – 60%) but will benefit from higher humidity levels.

Problems & Maintenance

This plant is prone to root rot, so care should be taken not to overwater it. While the nerve plant enjoys higher humidity, it should not be mist so often that water is left to sit on the leaves.

Suitable for Indoors

This is a plant that will live happily indoors so long it is properly cared for.

Pet Friendly

Hooray, this plant is pet and child friendly! No parts of this plant are toxic when ingested or irritating to the skin.
