Ivies prefer bright natural light but do not locate in a window with direct afternoon sun.
Water when the soil feels dry on the surface. Give the plant enough water to saturate the entire root system and drain out the bottom. Do not leave them sitting in water. Mist leaves occasionally, regularly in the summer months.
Ivies are happy in almost any temperature, but they prefer cool nights. Most homes are really too warm for Ivy. Try locating them in a room with minimal heat. An ideal location is a sun porch that is kept just above freezing between 4-15°C degrees at night.
Fertilize regularly during active growing months.
When the plant becomes top-heavy, root-bound or dries out too rapidly, it is time to re-pot. Put Ivies into slightly larger pots, just large enough to hold the roots.
