Care Information

  • Site

    A sunny spot without direct sunlight will allow the colours to come out at their brightest. A terrarium is perfect.

  • Temperature

    Warm and humid to allow maximum growth and plant health.

  • Water

    The soil should be moist but well drained. Do not allow to dry out. 

  • Feeding

    Once a month during the growing season.

  • Tip

    As with many vibrant plants, the colouration of the leaves depends on the amount of light it gets. The perfect balance of brightness without direct sunlight will bring out the striking reds and whites in all their glory.

Nerve Plant

Also known as the Mosaic Plant, this gorgeously vibrant and colourful vivarium is a great addition to any terrarium.

With flame red or tiger white highlights, they look incredible as a pair. The iridescent quality of the leaves is truly stunning, and in a healthy plant closely resemble a nervous system.

If left to grow, the spread of thick leaves will expand out and present an attractive plane of brilliant colour and shine, with vertical growth of up to 20cm from the top of the pot.
