Choosing the Right Planter for Your Artificial Fittonia Plant

If you're looking for a way to improve your home or office space, many people use the fresh and springlike touches which come with artificial plants. One popular choice for faux greenery is the versatile Fittonia plant. These leafy tropical plants are native to Peru, and their wide, dark green egg-shaped leaves are known as one of the most popular artificial plants.

Fittonias are often chosen because of the network of veins covering the surface of their leaves. This network of leaves has led to the plant being nicknamed the "nerve plant." The plants' veins are so prominent that their color is more often noticed than their leaves. Fittonia leaves feature veins of varying shades of red, pink, or white.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing a planter for your artificial Fittonia:

Size of the plant

Fake Fittonia plants come in a variety of sizes. A small plant with only one cluster of leaves can be displayed in a small planter or pot. However, if your faux Fittonia has many clusters, it will need a wider planter or a basket.

Standing versus hanging plant

Fittonias don't normally climb, so they don't need a tall planter. However, you can easily drape their leaf clusters around a wooden stand and extend their height. However, a hanging planter is the way to go if you prefer seeing a wide spread of leaves.

UV resistance

If you plan to display your faux Fittonia outdoors, you will want to be sure your planter is UV-resistant. The label of the planter should state whether it is UV-resistant, but if you have questions, it is safest to ask the manufacturer of the planter.

Decor style

The type of decor already in the room or office space where you intend to display your artificial Fittonias is also a consideration. The planter's style should match the room's style and complement the colors of your walls and furnishings. Fittonias with light white or pink veins can enhance the class of even the most elegant rooms, while a bright scarlet or neon pink Fittonia will add an exotic spark to a more contemporary setting.


How to choose the right planter material

Next, you should consider which of these types of planters appeals to you:
