Fittonia Plants
Q.

Is it ok to move your indoor plants between spots in the house everyday?

I have a small apartment which has a south-facing sliding glass door next to the patio. This is the best place that gets some bright indirect sunlight everyday. But as the weather gets chilly during evening, I prefer to move my houseplants (Fittonia juanita, mini phalaenopsis, song of India & money plant) away from the window and in front of the open kitchen which has bright artificial light right on top for the rest of the day. But I fear that my plants may not be very happy with the constant change of place everyday. Especially my Fittonia Juanita whose leaves have started drooping drastically (also because of my slight overwatering). Am I thinking right?

I believe like you that plants are happiest when in a fixed placement as much as possible, as long as the conditions are favorable. But I don't have any science on the issue to refer to.

If it gets too cold near the glass door then you may have no choice. They will tolerate an indoor move better than a freeze.
