Ivy Plant Care

An ivy plant is a lovely way to bring a touch of the outdoors in. It is easy to look after and provides beautiful green shades and interesting shapes.


Water plant from below the leaves and away from the stems to prevent rotting. Ivy prefers to have slightly dryer conditions so always check the soil before watering  - if it is damp you can leave it for another few days. If it is dry add some water. Usually once every 2 weeks in the cooler months and once a week during the summer. Your plant will also appreciate a wipe down with a damp cloth every now and then to keep the leaves fresh and dust free.


Ivy plants like plenty of light but make sure not to stand your plant in the direct sunlight as it could burn the leaves. A spot with plenty of filtered light will keep your plant happy and healthy. If your plant becomes rangy or loses colour it may not be getting enough light.
