What other plant parents say
Almost impossible to kill. Mine grows like crazy and if it wants water it will LET YOU KNOW. Super dramatically. Just give it water when you wake up in the morning and it suddenly is looking half dea…
I love my nerve plant!! his name is ben and i’ve had him for over a year. they are very easy to care for and very pretty. whenever they are thirsty, they get super droopy but as soon as you give them…
Super easy to take care of, especially with Greg. She does very well on my desk out of the direct west-facing window and grows beautifully without much effort on my part.
this plant has gorgeous leaves but i will wilt easily if you don’t water it on time, but again when you do water it, it comes back to life super quickly
Wait until all the leaves droop dramatically before watering. Otherwise, a pretty resilient little guy. Somewhat low-light tolerant.
very dramatic plant. if he doesn’t get watered often enough he wilts. perks up soon after getting watered. love him
A drama queen, but the leaves are so cute! Very easy to grow and propagate, as long as you keep her watered
I have mine right by a humidifier and filtered light and it’s been chillin can’t complain at all
She’s a drama Queen! But she is a fighter and is easy to take care of
low light, water when soil feels dry, and fertilize every month.
How to care for Nerve Plant
Nerve Plant needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Nerve Plant can tolerate being far from a window and light source.
Place it less than 6 feet from a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough light to survive 💪.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Nerve Plant in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Nerve Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
