Get to Know Glacier Ivy!

Highlights

This variety of English Ivy is aptly named ‘Glacier’ for its cool-toned colors with cream edges. This gorgeous cultivar is an easy type of trailing plant to grow indoors. The bushy appearance has thick stems that grow upright at first, then trail over the sides of its pot. Put this Ivy in a hanging basket or hanger to show off its gorgeous icy colors as they grow over the pot.

The English Ivy ‘Glacier’ is native to Europe and brought to the states by Colonial settlers. This is a perfect plant to propagate through cuttings because it is a fast-growing plant, the leaves will spill dreamily over the edges of hanging baskets and pots.

Watering

When watering your ivy, try not to be overly enthusiastic, because ivy really hates wet soil. Wait until the top inch or so of the potting mix is dry before watering. It is preferable to keep this houseplant a little too dry rather than a little too wet. (This is true for the majority of houseplants.) Also, ensure that the pot in which the ivy is growing has drainage holes.

Sunlight

Ivies prefer medium light, but they can also thrive in bright light. While ivies can technically grow in low light indoors, they won’t be thriving and most likely will not last long.

Pet-Friendly?

Yes. If eaten, English ivy leaves are poisonous and can cause skin irritation. Wear gloves when working with this plant and keep it away from children, cats, and dogs.

Sad Plant (is your plant dying?)

WILTED LEAVES: Leaves will wilt in either dry or consistently wet soil. Overwatering is the most common cause of root rot. It is best to use a container with drainage holes, thoroughly water it, and then empty the drainage tray. In the winter, when growth is slower, water less frequently.

DRY LEAVES: Cool, moist air and evenly moist soil will aid in the growth of your English Ivy indoors. Keep it away from drafts and heating vents. To keep the plant’s leaves from drying out, mist them frequently. Misting also helps to keep spider mites away from this plant.
