English Ivy Grows Like a Weed

The English Ivy is a perfect plant for cuttings. It only takes a week or two before the cutting grows roots, simply by soaking in water. Then they can be planted in potting soil. Last step, watch them grow in medium or direct light. The english ivy is the perfect plant for a beginner or just someone with a brown thumb. What are your thoughts? Please post them below.


  1. I always got spider mites when ever I tried English Ivy! "Grape Ivy" was the only kind I could get to grow with no bug problems. Probably because I got the clipping from a relative and not from a grocery store!

  2. A little pesticide goes a long way with spider mites. Don't give up on the english ivy it is a great air filter.
