Propagation for English Ivy
After coming back from vacation my English ivy that I was gifted from a friend caught mites from who-knows where. It’s my only plant affected as well. I treated it with some mite and bug killing thing I was given from my mom and have repeated this about 4 times in the past two weeks after they continued popping up again.

It’s killing my poor plant and i’m working with one half of an ivy right now. I decided today I would just rinse the plant and it’s pot and hope that removes the issue but I’d like to try to propagate the plant as well just in case the main source doesn’t make it.

How easy is this process, i’ve read it’s pretty moderate but i’m not experienced in this sorta thing so if any of you have any experience in this that would be great.

Too long, didn’t read:

Source ivy kept catching mites after being treated, I’d like to propagate it just in case but i’m inexperienced.

If you want to propagate ivy in water successfully, the steps are very simple.
Take several good cuttings with sterile pruners.Tou can steer them by using rubbing alcohol. Strip away the bottom leaves, leaving some nodes behind.
Place the ivy in water.
Leave in bright, indirect light and temperatures of 65-80°F (18-27°C) for 4-6 weeks.
