Ivy (Hedera Helix)
The Ivy (Hedera Heliz) is most commonly known as
the English Ivy. These plants have an evergreen
foliage and most widely seen crawling up stone or brick
Water your Ivy thoroughly but not frequently.
When the plant seems dry, add water to the top of the soil
only. Do not allow the pot to stand continuously in
water. Ivies can do well in many different light
conditions. It is recommended that the plant be put in
filtered or shaded light. Ivies also respond well to
fluorescent lights. But never put indoor plants
outdoors in full sunlight. When fertilizing use a
fertilizer high in nitrogen. This will help the Ivies
foliage do very well. Apply fertilizer to soil only.
Begin training ivy when it is
small. Pinch off the ends of the shoots frequently to
produce a bushy plant
Ivy plants sprout roots in
between the leaf and the stem. If you make a cut
before that area of the rooting, that plant should be able
to grow right away.
