Buy Fittonia collection snakeskin starter plants: Ideal for bottle gardens

  • Position: bright but indirect sun
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 10cm (including pot)
  • Pot covers: choose 10cm pot covers to give a good fit over the pots

    Grown for their attractively patterned foliage that comes in a variety of colours, fittonias are low-growing creepers, which in time can be used to trail over the edges of a shelf or cabinet.

    All the fittonias in this collection are unnamed and unlabelled, so it’s a bit of a lucky dip as to what you will receive (and they may not be the same varieties as those in the photos), however if you order the 6-pack (6 × 8.5cm pots), we will aim to send you as varied a selection as possible - ideally with no more than two of the same variety (stock permitting).

    Please note that the pots in the photograph are not supplied with the plants (which are sent out in simple nursery pots). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Keep well watered (using tepid water) during the growing season, but keep drier during the winter. Lovers of high humidity, avoid placing them next to a radiator, and mist the foliage regularly if they are not grown in a steamy bathroom or kitchen. Maintain temperatures above 15°C in winter.

Healthy plants


Ordered these for my daughter's room and then for my boy's terrarium. A bit disappointed that I got 3 colours out of a possible 5. I know it does say they can't guarantee all the colours but I took my chance. Just letting anyone know who is planning on doing the same thing. My daughter had heart set on the red Fittonia so I'm going to have to go on the hunt for that now. Otherwise healthy looking plants.

Which house plant where?

Which house plants you choose should depend on the environment you intend to keep them in, the space available, how much time you can spend preening them as well as your personal preference. For me, foliage house plants are the ticket, because they provid
