I have a red vein fittonia in my office that I bought last fall that has been slowly dying ever since. I have no idea what I am doing wrong and really need help! Here's the whole saga: (which you can skip if you just want to give me advice on fittonia in general) Back in fall 2003 I was in a cubicle, with its open side facing a tinted, south-facing window, about 10 feet from my desk. I got a peace lily and a white brocade fittonia, and they both did great for a while. Then in mid-2004, I moved into my own office with no windows. To give my plants some light, I left my fluorescent office lights on every night. Both plants were stable for quite a while. They weren't growing or thriving, but not dying. But then, after perhaps 8 months or a year, one of the stalks of the fittonia started drooping. That stalk slowly dried up and died. Then another stalk started... In early 2006, I moved into another office, the one I'm currently in, and it has a huge, non-tinted east-facing window, which I never lower the blinds on. However, the window gets very little direct sunlight, because there are lots of tree branches filtering it, and because the building juts out on the right side of the window and the sun moves behind it and over the building after about 10 am. Nevertheless, I thought I might be able to finally save my fittonia with a little real light. I moved both plants into the new office on top of my filing cabinet so they were about 10 feet from the window and never touched by direct sun, but got a little real light. Nevertheless, the last stalk of the fittonia drooped and it completely died not long after I moved to my current office. Not to be deterred, I bought another fittonia last fall, and it's slowly been drooping and dying. A couple months ago I moved it onto the windowsill, but the right side, which only gets some direct sunlight for about an hour in the morning, in a desperate attempt to change its conditions and save it. So far, it's doing no good. It's not worse, but not better. I have no idea if I'm watering it too much or not enough. I try to keep the soil "moderately moist" as its tag says, but who really knows what that means?! Please, I'm determined to not let my second fittonia die if I can at all help it. Can anyone help me?
