Hedera helix, English Ivy, type C (0.08m)
Hedera helix (English ivy plants) are superb climbers, clinging to almost any surface by means of small roots that grow along the stems. English ivy care is easy and fuss-free, so you can plant it in distant and hard-to-reach areas without worrying about maintenance.
Sunlight: Although English ivy plants can tolerate full sunlight, they prefer full shade or partial sunlight.

Fertiliser: English ivy seldom requires fertilizer, but if required, spray with half strength liquid fertilizer as directed.
Plant size: approx. 8cm tall, climbs sideways without any support (vary in sizes)
Rootball size: 8cmØ x 6.5cmH
Pot type: Plant comes in colorful landscape pot (random colour with drainage hole)

* Kindly take note when you're purchasing matching pot, the diameter has to be larger than the rootball size.
To allow your ivy plants to grow taller, plant them near a trellis, stake, or growing pole, then guide the vines around the structure and allow them to attach and climb on their own. Planting your ivy plants in a hanging basket will cause the plants to grow and hang over the edges in cascading form.
Light and Water Requirements
All plants depend on light for their survival, thus making sure your ivy plants get the right amount of light is key to keeping them happy. In a container pot, group your plants with other plants of similar light and water requirements. Don't mix shade lovers with sun lovers in a single pot; one or both of them will be unhappy, depending on where you place the pot.
