Fittonia (nerve plant). Avoid direct sun and provide lots of moisture and humidity as they can be tricky.

Many thanks. How many times a day should I mist it?

Try asking the question on the houseplants forum, there will be folks with experience of growing it there.

Misting would be less effective than a terrarium or cloche.
The golden rule: Do to others only that which you would have done to you.

Yes, Nerve Plant (Fittonia albivenis) prefer bright, indirect light and consistently moist (but not soggy) soil. Providing extra humidity can be beneficial and can be achieved by sitting the pot on a tray of moist pebbles and refilling the tray with a little water as it evaporates.

LOL... I don't have room, or the desire for a Terrarium. In that I mist many of my plants, is there a problem misting this one?
