  • Ivy, or Hedera plant, is a vigorous, evergreen woody plant in the Araliaceae family. It has heart-shaped green leaves and tiny aerial roots that grow along the stems to help it climb. This plant is best seen cascading down from a hanging basket or container.

    Ivy is one of the most popular houseplants, as it gives a nice touch of nature to your living spaces while requiring very little care. Plus, Ivy can grow even in moderate to low light spots, making it a perfect plant for any home and office.

     This is one of the most popular indoor plants with an air-purifying and toxin-removing effect. Mature plants produce clusters of small, yellow-green flowers in autumn, followed by globe-shaped, black fruits.




  • Ivy needs less light than other houseplants. It thrives in moderate light/indirect sunlight. If grown outdoors, this plant prefers partial shade. Avoid scorching sun to prevent sunburn.

    Water frequently every 2-4 days or when the soil is slightly dry to the touch. This plant needs regular watering but over-watering can cause root rot.

    Well-Drained, Porous potting soil.

    This plant thrives in temperatures of 65°F-85°F. Avoid too high or too low temperature.

    This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

    When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
  • It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
