#help I took this out of its mini greenhouse and I didn't realize it would dry up that fast. Should I cut this branch off or wait for it to grow back?? #advice

Give it a water. Aprently they faint if they dry out but recover quickly after watering

Just give it a few days to recover. Make sure it has enough water.

Apparently they need a humid environment and grow better in terrariums that are kept misted in a warm room!

Yep @bigemrg I had it in a mini greenhouse thing but I took it out but cause it was taking up to much space. I payed the price alright. I'm finding a terrarium that is quite wide so it can grow and spread out.

21/08/17. New growth! But it seems to be more white than the original leaves. Will it get pinker over time or is something wrong.

29/04/17. My nerve plant was going crisp and curling. Decided I wanted to try out a terrarium to keep up the humidity. I put it in a temporary terrarium while I'm ordering one. #terrarium #nerveplant #fuchsia #humidity #indoor #houseplant #pink #reuse

I decided to put this plant by my humidifier that I usually keep going on all day hope that will keep it OK.

That sounds like a good idea. You could also put it on a tray of damp pebbles if it doesn't work.

Help me identify this plant. This came in a plant arrangement but they all needed different conditions so put them in separate pots. It's #green with #pink. I will be posting the rest so please follow me to help. #plantid #indoorplants #pretty #help #trailing #plantid-

What's the care you give this plant, I got one and I have no idea? Thanks

@mardel . Mine is just sat in a North facing window. It gets a good misting everyday because without humidity it doesn't do well. Don't mist it when it's sunny because it will get sun burnt. To keep it bushy you can trim it or pinch it out. It does do well in terrariums. It needs a lot of sun otherwise the pink veins turn green.

Great tips, how about Watering? How often should I water it? Thanks

@mardel I just water it whenever the soil looks/feels dry. This is less often because of the misting.
