Best Locations For Growing Glacier English Ivy
Glacier English Ivy can tolerate varying levels of light, from low light to bright direct light. That noted, this vine does best in bright indirect light. With an affinity for average temperatures of 45 to 80 degrees F and mild humidity of 40% and above, this lovely vine will thrive in almost any room. Take heed, however, when choosing a room that is frequented by little fingers and paws; this striking house plant is toxic to people and pets.
Glacier English Ivy Sunlight Requirements
Since this broadleaf shrub prefers bright indirect light, place it in a south-facing, east-facing, or west-facing window. To prevent sunburn, place Glacier English Ivy at least 3-5 feet away from any south-facing windows.
Glacier English Ivy Care
A 6-inch pot, filled with loamy, well-drained soil is a fine choice for starting off this evergreen vine. An average indoor potting soil amended with peat moss and perlite will adequately retain the moisture this shrub prefers. To shape this perennial, pruning is required, preferably during the months of spring. Finally, this houseplant yields aromatic blooms and showy berries during the months of August thru December.
Watering Glacier English Ivy
Depending on the temperature and humidity, this plant does not require frequent watering, usually only once per week or so. This drought-tolerant plant also does not like sitting in soggy soil so doing a moisture check is wise. Insert your fingers an inch or two beneath the surface of the soil and water if it feels dry.
Feeding Glacier English Ivy
Glacier English Ivy requires infrequent fertilizing. Simply feed this shrub a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer one time per month except during the winter months.
