What other plant parents say
I have a love hate relationship with Ivys. They really grind my gears. This is my fourth Ivy and every single Ivy I’ve had has died. I’ve tried watering less, watering more, MISTING THE DAMN THING. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong. I’m hoping this one decides not to die. Hard to keep alive, but pretty.
Make sure to test it out to see if your ivy enjoys shade or sun. I’m a new plant parent so this might make some experts upset Bc I’m probably supposed to know all about the plant. But my ivy wasn’t growing and didn’t seem happy in the light so I moved him to a shelf corner and he stared thriving!
I’ve had this English Ivy for 4 months. It is easy to look after. I have mine positioned in my bathroom positioned in a east facing window. I’ve realised Ivy can grow in light limited environments. Propagation is easy with this plant. I’ve propagated in water, it takes a 3-4 weeks. In my work they have Ivy that has not been nurtured well, not potted regularly or watered consistently. It survives even in those conditions.
I LOVE english ivy, especially the verigated version. this little friend loves morning light (if anywhere else, back it up from the window, new leaves will burn) and does well if you forget her for a couple days. she has put out so much new growth, she’s so hardy to my shenanigans, those being moving and causing some stress. luckily, i learned this beauty fairly quick
