The Dirt

Native to Northern Europe and Western Asia. The Botanical name is Hedera Helix. Hedera is another word to say ivy and Helix is derived from Ancient Greek and means twist. 

English Ivy is a woody perennial vine. If the vine gets too unruly you can prune it back and propagate that piece! 

Part Sun

This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Water once a week. Before watering, feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.

Pet Toxic

Only when ingested it may cause mild oral and gastrointestinal upsetness. Keep out of reach from pets and small children.
