In the title compound, [Ni(NCS)2(C13H19N3O)(H2O)], the NiII ion is six-coordinated by the N,N',N''-tridentate Schiff base, the N atoms of two thiocyanate ligands and one water O atom in a distorted octahedral geometry. Intramolecular C-HN and C-HO hydrogen bonds occur. In the crystal, O-HS, O-HO and C-HS hydrogen bonds link adjacent molecules into layers parallel to the ac plane.
