The stately Teardrop English Ivy is a charming houseplant that does well with little care. The glossy, teardrop-shaped foliage is a lovely dark-green color. This plant starts out small but grows quickly, and the vines are natural climbers. Teardrop English Ivy is also known as Hedera helix 'Teardrop’, English Ivy, and Common Ivy, and it can overtake a space. The vines may require pruning to keep the plant at a manageable size. The cuttings can easily be propagated to create new plants.

Best Locations For Growing Teardrop English Ivy

The right location will help Teardrop English Ivy thrive and allow you to enjoy the lovely foliage. Consider placing this plant on a high shelf or in a plant hanger so the vines can trail. The ideal spot will have a lot of sunlight and humidity. A steamy bathroom or kitchen will encourage new growth.

Teardrop English Ivy Sunlight Requirements

Bright indirect light is ideal for Teardrop English Ivy. This plant needs plenty of light to grow its reaching vines and abundant foliage. The charming Teardrop English Ivy can handle very limited levels of light. Routinely inspect the leaves for signs of sunburn and move the plant if necessary.

Teardrop English Ivy Care

Teardrop English Ivy uses aerial roots to hold onto anything within reach. The plant may attach itself to walls or furniture, so give this plant a moss pole or trellis to climb. Alternatively, you can display it in a hanging basket and trim the vines before they can get a grip on anything you do not want to be damaged.

Watering Teardrop English Ivy

Water this plant when the top inch of soil is dry. Teardrop English Ivy likes damp conditions, and the soil should not be allowed to dry out completely. Average humidity is preferred; dry winter air can be damaging when grown as a houseplant, but a humidifier or pebble tray can help this plant stay moist.Teardrop English Ivy will typically remain lush during the spring and summer.

Feeding Teardrop English Ivy

Teardrop English Ivy is a fast grower, but keeping it well fed will help it consistently push out new growth. Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer monthly from spring through fall. Stop feeding during the winter when the ivy is not actively growing.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
