Indoor Variegated Ivy - 'Variegata' Hedera helix
Variegated Ivy - 'Variegata' Hedera helix
Light - Variegated ivy requires indirect or filtered sunlight. The variegated color pattern happens because the leaves have less chlorophyll than most other forms of ivy. Due to the lack of chlorophyll, the leaves do not do well in direct sunlight. If the leaves get direct sunlight, they can start to turn brown and die.
Water - Indoor Ivy moist but well-drained soil. Check the soil moisture with your finger. If the top 2-4” (5-10cm) of soil is dry, or plants are wilted, it is time to water.
