    Fittonia albivenis ("Mosaic Plant" or "Nerve Plant") is a popular houseplant with bright green leaves and beautiful white to pink heavily veined foliage. It prefers bright light but no direct sun and a moderate amount of humidity. The tips should be pinched regularly to prevent legginess. I've had success growing this plant in terrariums.
