How to care for English Ivy

Light:  English ivy plants grow well in part shade to full shade. Ivy grown indoors needs bright, indirect light in summer but can benefit from some direct light in winter.

Water: When watering your ivy, always check the soil before adding water. Let the top 1-2 inch of soil dry out between watering .  Also, make sure that your plant has excellent drainage. Ivy should not be kept in standing water or overly wet soil.

Soil:  Grow this evergreen vine in well-drained soil. Indoors, ivy does best in potting mix that is loose and well-drained. To make potting mix use equal parts of sand , compost and garden soil

Temperature: English Ivy plants can grow in temperatures between 45 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Their leaves will stay dark green when grown in consistent temperatures and medium to high humidity. It does not like cold winter wind or high summer heat.

Fertilizer: Liquid fertilizer during the growing season every  month . Don't fertilize this plant in winters .
