Plant care best practices
English Ivy loves shades. They grow very well in areas which are partially shaded. Full shade and indirect sunlight are best. As a houseplant, they need to be kept in a place where there is indirect filtered sunlight. Good air circulation is also needed to grow this plant fast. They like moist areas and regular watering is needed. Too much of a cold will stop the growth of the plant. Extreme heat and direct sunlight will also affect the plant from growing. The soil should not be too moist and no overwatering should be done to the plant.
Once the plant is received, kindly unpack and leave the plant in the balcony / open space for 2 days. Kindly water the plant if the top soil is dry. Change of the container shall be done only after a few days.
