Watering

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Nerve plants are sensitive to both underwatering and overwatering. Water when the top inch of the soil feels slightly dry to the touch.

Feeding

Feed nerve plants with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or eliminate fertilizer in the fall and winter when growth slows down.

Humidity

Nerve plants appreciate high humidity levels. To create a humid environment, consider placing a tray filled with water and pebbles near the plant or using a room humidifier.

Light Requirements

Nerve plants thrive in bright, indirect light. They prefer filtered sunlight or dappled shade. Avoid exposing them to harsh, direct sunlight, as this can scorch their delicate leaves.
