Fittonia

The nerve plant’s dramatic leaves, which belong to the Fittonia genus, are quite striking despite their diminutive size. They add color and pattern to any collection of plants thanks to their typically white, but occasionally pink or even red veins that stand out against the green leaves. Many growers cut the flowers off as they bloom to prevent the plant from “wasting” energy on them since the decorative foliage rather than the relatively insignificant flower.
