Light Hailing from tropical regions, Devil’s Ivy will thrive in most conditions, but it’s best suited to warmer, sunnier scenarios. While tolerant of low light this plant will thrive in bright, indirect light. Bright light will also help your Devil’s Ivy keep its variegated leaves. Water Devil’s Ivy doesn’t have a raging thirst and prefers its soil drier than drenched. To maintain it at its best keep the soil moist, but allow the top layer of the potting mix to dry out between watering. If you notice the leaves are yellowing, this may be a sign of overwatering. If your Devil’s Ivy is sitting in a saucer, it’s best not to let it stay in any excess water as this may cause root rot and ruin your plant. Once the water has filtered through, empty the saucer and leave your plant to get growing. Devil’s Ivy is very forgiving; if you forget to keep it hydrated, it’s easily rejuvenated by letting it sit in shallow water for an hour or so. Temperature & Humidity Devil’s Ivy prefers average to warm environments (18°C to 25°C) and average humidity.  It should be given regular misting during the winter if the humidity is exceptionally dry. Maintenance Devil’s Ivy is easy to propagate and can be grown from cuttings. Place the cuttings in glass jars for around two weeks to encourage rooting, and once the shoots pop through, plant the vine into the soil. Read more about how to propagate plants. Regularly trim the stems to shape the plant to avoid Devil’s Ivy taking over. This will help keep it full and bushy. Keep your Devil’s Ivy looking great by removing dead or yellowing leaves along with any damaged stems.
