A fast-growing vine, devil's ivy is a climber whose length depends on whether it’s outdoor or indoors, plants typically range from 6 to 8 feet in length if left un-pruned. The vine produces waxy, heart-shaped foliage variegated with bright yellow and green, and once again, the size of the leaves depends on where the plant is cultivated. Indoors, the leaves may reach about 4 inches in length, although leaves on outdoor plants can grow up to 30 inches long.
If you're growing it in containers, an all-purpose, peaty potting mix that drains well is adequate for proper growth.
Handy Growing Tips:
Devil’s ivy grows well in partial to full shade outdoors, but growth slows when it's planted in deep shade and the foliage loses its variegation, turning mostly green. If you're growing the plant indoors, situate it in an area that receives filtered sunlight or bright artificial light.
No worries if you forget about fertilizing devil’s ivy because it isn’t a heavy feeder, and its growth probably won’t skip a beat. However, you can feed both indoor and outdoor plants with a general-purpose liquid houseplant fertilizer. An application or two through the growing season should be sufficient. Always follow label directions for application instructions and the specific amount to use.
Water Requirements- do not over water me
Devil’s ivy is highly drought-tolerant, so don’t fret if your note to yourself to water the plants slips your mind for several weeks. While the plant is actively growing, water houseplants deeply – until it runs from the bottom drainage holes – approximately once a week or when the top inch or two of soil feels dry. During winter, cut back on watering to about once every other week. Watering outdoor plants once a week is sufficient but reduce the frequency to once every two weeks in winter.
If you have heating units or air-conditioners, it is best to avoid placing plants underneath or next to them. This is because of the air blowing out from these units can be extremely hot or cold which can leave a healthy plant burnt, damaged and stressed. We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner Plant Food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!
