This 'Soft Ivy' plant is not winter-hardy like Hedra Helix Ivy but it is faster to grow. This variety fills pots with full rich green foliage. Native to Africa.
Use well-drained soil with pH between 5.5 and 6.5; never allow it to stay saturated. Low feed (150 ppm nitrogen) is recommended in shaded or medium lighted condition. Plant 1-2 plugs per 4in pot at 60 degree night temperature. Plant 4 plugs per 10in basket. Watch for mealy bugs.
Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
