Just like the essential Fittonia verschaffeltii, the Gigantea variety has the same foliage but larger! The Fittonia is highly appreciated for the relief and coloring of its foliage. Indeed, the color of its leaves contrasts with its colored veins. In order to maintain its compact and chubby habit, it is recommended to pinch the ends of the stems. In natural habitat, it grows in the shade of trees in tropical forests.
