Hedera helix green

Pot: 8.5cm

Plant Height: 25cm

Light
In both winter and summer, ivy likes bright light, but avoid direct sunlight in summer. In winter, plants may accept a bit of direct sunlight, such as when placed in south-facing windows.

Soil
Fertile, moist, but well-drained soil is ideal for English ivy. In hotter, drier climates, the ground should be heavily mulched to keep it cool and moist. Indoors, English ivy likes loose, well-drained potting mix.

Water
Potted ivy prefers moist, humid conditions, but not soaking. Don’t let the soil dry out and keep it evenly moist, which encourages attractive red foliage in the fall.

Temperature and Humidity
Outdoors, English ivy does best in moderate conditions, protected from both harsh winter winds and excessive heat of summer. Very humid conditions can encourage root rot and bacterial leaf spot.

Ivies grown indoors prefer cooler nights, often below 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Many species can overwinter outside in pots and will grow back from their stems. During hot summer days, mist frequently.

Fertilizer
This vigorous plant requires little feeding. A small feeding in early spring is about all that's needed, and in ideal conditions, even this is unnecessary. During the growing season, feed with controlled-release fertilizer or biweekly with weak liquid fertilizer.
