Nerve Plant 'Rosa'

(Listing for Plant Only, Shop Pots and Planters)

Intricate | Delicate | Soft

This is a beautiful, ethereal little plant that loves gentle care. It doesn't like direct sunlight and just wants to be misted, making this plant the perfect addition to the plant collection of those who want to love their plants.

This plant doesn't grow much taller than a few inches off the ground, preferring instead to cover the soil it's presented with. Its leaves are delicate and thin, and the color remains striking throughout its life. Blossoms very small yellowish-white or red flowers in July - August. 

Propagate easily by taking leaf-tip cuttings in late spring or early summer. Make sure at least two growing nodes are on the cutting for best results. Pot the cutting in a peat-based soil mix and expect roots in 2 to 3 weeks.

Lighting: Low to medium indirect

Water: Water regularly, taking care not to let the soil dry out completely. Mist often.

Soil/Potting: Plant in a rich organic soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic. Keep soil shallow to allow for proper drying. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits

Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recomended for steady growth and to promote flowering

Temperature: Room temp, protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter

Toxicity: Non-toxic for humans and pets; still definitely not tasty..
