Ivy in the apartment
For me, ivy was always a problem in the apartment, after a few weeks, I have repeatedly received. Then I got some tips and until now my ivy stops;)
So: only water ivy when it is "dry"! Have no water in the planter. Dust regularly, otherwise the plant can not breathe properly (the latter is probably true for all flowers). Dry heating air does not like the ivy so much. In winter a real problem. Now and then spray with lukewarm water, and do not put directly to the heater. In the summer, not necessarily in the south window, partial shade is the ivy dear !.
Fertilize regularly and treat every 2-3 years (if it still lives) new earth.
