• Light: Ivy needs bright light. Variegated cultivars need the brightest or variegation will become less pronounced in less light.

    Watering: Always check the soil before adding water. Ivy prefers to be kept slightly on the dry side, so let the soil dry out some (dry to the touch on top) before you water your ivy plant again. Also, make sure that your plant has excellent drainage, as ivy does not like to be in standing water or overly wet soil.

    Humidity: Would benefit from additional humidity either from a humidifier or humidity tray.

    Temp: Does best when room temperature is moderate, between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, and a bit lower at night.

    Soil: They grow well in standard potting soil. The soil should retain some moisture but should also drain well.

    Fertilizer: Fertilize monthly in the spring, summer, and fall with a water soluble, nitrogen-rich fertilizer. Do not fertilize in the winter.

    Toxicity: Mildly toxic to pets.
