I just bought this plant from home depot and it has no tag. I thought it was a Fittonia but now I'm not sure.

I think it is a Hypoestes (polka dot)

I agree, that lovely plant is Hypoestes and looks like 'Splash White Select'

It is a fairly easy to get along-with house plant. If it tries to bloom in the fall, don't panic of the older, taller stems die back and new growth starts from the base. That has always happened when I took some inside for winter. This is root-hardy where I am now, and that is what it does in the ground also. Might stay evergreen where Lin is...?
