Identify my little houseplant!

What kind of plant is this?

I bought this little plant yesterday. What kind of plant is it, and how should I take care of it? (How much light does it need, how often should I water it, etc.)

I've included a dry erase marker for scale, which is about 5 in (12 cm) tall.

I'm not really one for plants but this one was way too cute. Thanks, green thumb MeFites!

I believe it's a Fittonia.

It is a lovely fittonia!

Mine seems happy on a coffee table in a bright living room with lukewarm water mist every other day or so. My neighbor has one in a pot on his patio in more full sun and it seems even happier.
