Assorted Ivy Care & Maintenance

Light Level: When indoors, it’s good to give your ivy bright, indirect light. With too much shade, the plant can grow leggy, and too much direct light can scorch its leaves. Humidity is generally good for ivy, and moderate temperatures are ideal.

Water: Most have moderate water requirements and don’t like to be soggy, so be sure to let the soil dry out between watering. Once a week during the spring and summer, and less often in winter, is typical.

Fertilizing: Ivy grows best when planted in well-drained soil. Don’t fertilize too often; feeding ivy once a month during the warmer months is usually a good bet.

Trimming and Upkeep: Trim whenever the plant becomes to long or if it is looking leggy.
