English Ivy | Hedera Helix | Plant Care
Latin: Hedera helix
Light: Your Ivy will do best in bright, indirect light. In winter, plants can accept a bit of direct sunlight, such as when placed in south-facing windows.
Water: Your Ivy prefers moist, humid conditions. It can tolerate minimal drought-like conditions but will produce the most vibrant colour in evenly moist soil.
English Ivy is a vigorous and aggressive woody evergreen vine native to Europe and parts of Russia.
NASA’s Clean Air Study lists English Ivy as a great plant for air-purifying benefits in removing toxins such as benzene, toluene, and trichloroethylene. It is also a great plant to improve respiratory health, especially for people who are suffering from allergies and asthma.
