Fittonias are the unsung heroes of the houseplant world. These inexpensive miniature plants have colorful veining, which is why fittonias are also referred to as nerve plants. You can find these houseplants in a range of colors, including a few shades of pink. Our favorite pink cultivars are Fittonia albivenis 'Frankie' and Fittonia verschaffeltii 'Pink Angel.'
Give fittonias constant indirect light and water them regularly, especially when you see that their leaves drooping.


Pink Houseplants Echeverias
Echeverias are often called ‘stone roses,’ and once you lay your eyes on the pink rosettes of these beautiful succulents, you’ll instantly understand why. In our opinion, the two prettiest pink cultivars are Echeveria ‘Perle Von Nurnberg’ and Echeveria ‘Pink Champagne.’ Mature echeverias grow to be around 10 inches (25 cm) in diameter, and they have thick fleshy leaves covered by a pinkish white natural dusting that protects these succulents from sun rays.
Echeverias are related to cacti and require very similar growing conditions - bright direct light and very little water. If you’re growing these plants indoors, place them on the sunniest windowsill and be careful not to overwater. 


Pink Houseplants Caladium
Caladiums come in a huge variety of color combinations and can be grown both indoors and outdoors. As for the pink varieties, the large heart-shaped leaves can either look completely pink or have green leaves with a splash of pink.
Caladium leaves are very thin and delicate, so you don’t want to keep them in direct sunlight. Otherwise, the plant will develop crispy brown tips. Caladium doesn’t mind drying out a bit in-between watering, so make sure that the top few inches of the soil dry out before you water this houseplant.


Pink Houseplants Tradescantia
Tradescantias are famously easy to care for; they grow rather quickly, tolerate a varying amount of light, and require little watering. Not all tradescantias have pink leaves, but cultivars like Tradescantia blossfeldiana 'Bubblegum,' Tradescantia fluminensis 'Tricolor,' and Tradescantia pallida 'Pink Stripes' all come in vibrant shades of pink.

Arrowhead Plant (Syngonium podophyllum)

If you’re looking for a soft pink houseplant that can tolerate a variety of light conditions, a pink Syngonium is one of the best choices. The large arrowhead-shaped leaves of this plant are somewhat similar to Caladium, but Syngoniums are generally less finicky to have in the house because they don’t require a lot of water.
That being said, it’s best to keep your pink Syngonium closer to a window if you want to maintain the bright pink coloring of the leaves.
