These plants like consistent watering. If you should forget, they will let you know, but no worries, they will be somewhat forgiving if you water them sufficiently once you've noticed they've started to droop.
Fittonia do not require a lot of direct light, so they are a good choice for rooms with small windows or without direct sun. They could tolerate sunnier conditions as long as the light is filtered or if they are far away from a window.
EASE OF CARE
These plants are relatively easy to care for, especially for those who have lighting conditions that are typical of most homes. We refer to them as indicator plants, as they will give you a hint when they need water, and if you're paying attention they will perk back up.
