Houseplant Cultural information: Established plants of Hedera ivy are quite easy to grow. Just place them in any location that is naturally lit where you can read... and the plant will grow. 

Check for watering weekly. A steady diet of food and systemic insecticide granules should keep your plant happy. Trim any vines that become to long and root in water or vermiculite. These ivies come in many leaf shapes and sizes... both green and variegated. They are available from small starter pots, to hanging baskets and topiaries.
