Ivy Hedera 'Pittsburgh'

Hedera helix 'Pittsburgh'
A hanging or climbing plant?
This compact ivy with pointy leaves just doesn't do well in dark corners... The plant even improves air quality! The plant can climb, but is also suitable as a hanging plant. The dark leaves have a subtle striped pattern.
This plant requires high humidity levels. The ivy doesn't require much light, so don't put it in full sun. For the Hedera, the general rule is: the more uniform its leaf colour is, the less sunlight it needs. That's why the Hedera helix needs its leaves sprayed when the edges are looking dry. Also keep the potting soil moist at all times, without letting the roots stand in water.
Use the ivy to dress up a plain corner in the room.

Planting+

The Ivy plants are supplied in a standard nursery pot. You can repot to a larger planter using humus-rich potting compost. Or you can leave it in the same pot and stand the pot as it is in an attractive planter. A saucer is fine too. Wait until the water has been absorbed or evaporated before watering again – water only when saucer is empty.

Choose a warm place in the living room for your Hedera helix, but really, a cool spot like a bedroom or bathroom will not be a problem. Do avoid direct sunlight on the plant. The plant will require less water in cooler surroundings.

Care+

Ivy (Hedera helix) prefers (partially) shaded spots! The Hedera helix likes to be kept humid so we recommend spraying the leaves regularly with rainwater, it will then remain beautiful. If the air is too dry, the edges of the leaves will dry and curl. This ivy plant is a fast grower without needing much feeding - if you do feed it, use plant food for leafy plants.

Water less in the winter keeping the plant slightly drier and cooler. Wait until spring to resume watering and feeding.

Extra tips


Extra+

Ivy (Hedera helix) comes from the temperate climes of Europe. It grows in woods and forests climbing through the trees but is just as happy creeping along the ground.

Hedera is self climber, the stems have small suction cups at regular intervals along the stems which helps them to attach onto any surface, they are not feeders.

Indoors, Hedera is often grown as a hanging plant too - which is not a problem for this plant and it will look very decorative.

New research has classified Hedera into the ivy family (Araliaceae).
