Painted Net Leaves by KeldBach Painted Net Leaves by KeldBach
Found these plants growing along a stone fence and think they belong to the Painted Net Leaf family (Fittonia verschaffeltii). However, they come in so many different shapes and colours that I can't be completely sure. Any help appreciated.

Sorry, no idea yet, but does not seem to be related to Fittonia. Fittonia leaves are generally shiny, a bit thick and round with all leaves being the same color almost. There are no noticeable thin hair at the edges (as in this). Their leaf arrangement is also not similar to this one (Fittonia have decussate). On stone fence you say? then it may be some creeper or wall climber?


Anyways, one best thing I like about your photographs is your attempt to provide the Popular and Scientific naming of the species and this one is a must have. i will be looking for this species ina.

No problem and thanks for trying :) You certainly seem to know a lot more about plants than I do, and the Painted Net Leaf was the closest I could get after a quick search. The leaves were covering the ground in a thick layer along the stone fence, but not really climbing. The strange thing about them was that most of the leaves were plain green and only a few of them had this reddish colour with a distinct pattern. Anyway, thanks again for trying :)
