You can place this terrarium under
2) Bright indirect light (i.e. within 1 metre away from window)
Pour half a spray bottle (25ml) every 2 stalks, every 2-3 days
3) Medium light (within 2-3 metres away from window)
Pour half a spray bottle (25ml) every 2 stalks, every 3-4 days
– You have to pour water onto the soil, spraying water alone is insufficient
– If fittonia droops, pour some water and it’ll perk up
– Adjust according to weather conditions and temperature of location
e.g. during rainy periods, rate of evaporation is lower so decrease watering volume/frequency slightly
e.g. if your window area is warm, rate of evaporation is higher so increase watering volume/frequency slightly
Slow release fertiliser (osmocote)
1/2 teaspoon per 2 stalks of fittonia
Do not exceed as it will cause fertiliser burn
Low to high humidity are ok
Spraying is not a must
You can spray up to 3 times a day if you wish
Aircon environment is fine
40% coco peat, 40% perlite, 20% potting soil
Pour 1/2 a spray bottle of water onto the soil of the terrarium every 2-3 days. Pour the water near the stem and roots of the fittonia stalks.
You may also mist your fittonia regularly, but spraying alone is insufficient. You’ll have to pour water directly onto the soil.
Keep soil lightly moist, but not soggy or soaked. If over-watered, your fittonia may develop yellow leaves. You can look at soil moisture through the transparent glass container
If your fittonia lacks water, it will appear droopy like this, but it’s not dead:
You just have to add water to the soil or increase the amount of water you pour and the leaves will “plump” up again.
Place the terrarium under indirect sunlight e.g. next to a window, or within 6 inches under a grow light 5-8 hours a day.
Do not leave it under direct sun as the fittonia will dry up.
Fittonia is tolerant of low light, but it may not grow as healthily e.g. lesser new leaves and colours on leaves will start to fade/leaves lose vibrancy.
Fittonia does grow taller, so if they get too tall, simply trim them using a pair of scissors. Cut away the top but ensure there are still leaves left on the stem.
