Ivy is a wonderful and easy house plant to care for, making it a great starter plant. It prefers bright indirect light to keep it happy. This is important because when placed in an area without enough light, ivy can become leggy and thin.
Always check soil before watering. Ivy does not like to be in standing water or overly wet soil, so make sure your pot has good drainage.
Ivy also comes in a variety of cultivars and species so keep a lookout for a style that matches your home. Below are just a few varieties out there:
