A loveable rogue (the common name 'Devil's Ivy is said to stem from the near impossibility of killing it) Merrily tumbling from a shelf or a hanging planter, this fast-growing variety will soon bring a touch of Tarzan to your lounge. Especially happy when encouraged to climb, the mature form of these handsome leaves will slowly emerge. When trained up a stout pole or trellis, the leaves become steadily broader and much larger, developing splits and holes akin to Monstera (a very distant cousin)

Please note, the planter is not included.

 


Watering

Water regularly during warmer months but allow the soil to dry out between each watering and make sure the roots are never sitting in water for a prolonged period. Water less frequently during colder months.

Light requirements 

Requires plenty of indirect light but may suffer if it gets too much direct sunlight. A lack of light can lead to leggy stems/ low growth rate / loss of leaves. 

Care tips

  • Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows
  • Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust
  • Prune out any brown leaves or stems by cutting as close to the next stem or the base of the plant as possible
  • Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth)
