I got this swedish ivy from a friend and it's leaves are browning and limp.
It's been divided, so very sparse, but I'm hoping I can get it looking healthy again. Some leaves are plump and shiny, but most are soft and limp. I've moved it into more light, but I don't have any experience with this plant.. #swedishivy
6” pot with drainage

Looks overwatered, especially the way you describe the leaves. Does the pot have drainage? Your plant card says there’s No Drainage, which could be the issue. Maybe your soil is also retaining too much moisture? They’re sensitive to humidity and light, so maybe placing it in a medium to bright shaded area and making sure your medium has excellent drainage will help this problem :)
It does have drainage, but I may repot it and change the soil a bit. Thanks!
@Lemonzinger Awesome! I’ve found that changing the soil sometimes just helps the plant re-settle into its pot. Maybe the roots needed a little help :)
