Bright indirect light is best for this plant to grow. It can also do well is low light conditions if there is not much sun in your home. However, the bright the light the more variegated the leaves will be. Avoid direct sunlight or the leaves may burn.
Water this plant every 7-10 days. Do not let the soil dry out and keep the soil evenly moist to encourage red foliage in the fall.
A consistent temperature of around 60-70°F is preferred. Keep away from any hot or cold drafts in your home.
This plant likes humidity but can thrive in moderate conditions. Occasionally mist the leaves if your home is dry but avoid too much humidity as this may cause the plant to rot. Do not keep around too many other plants.
This is a fast grower and can reach up to 15' tall. Use well-drained soil to plant and fertilize once a month in spring, summer and fall.
This plant is toxic to pets if eaten.
A great choice for a plant that can clean your air! English Ivy can reduce the amount of mold in your home, remove airborne fecal-matter, and soak up carcinogens!
I couldn't be happier with my purchases. I ordered 6 English Ivy, a couple of Jasmine plants and creeping fig. All of them arrived to me very well-packaged and in *incredible condition*. Not only that, Sara has been such a pleasure to correspond with. Highly recommend using 36vine for your plant purchases. 👍🏼
