Ivy White Wonder
Ivy White Wonder, aka Hedera Helix 'White Wonder', is an evergreen perennial. Their lobed, dark green leaves featured with shades of light green and white edges, and trailing vines are a great addition to your home. They can also be used as ground cover for planters, or climbers, due to their aerial rootlets, which allow them to climb to heights of 50 feet or more.
They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
They will do well in medium light but will grow faster with brighter light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 2 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Water more often in the warmer months.
They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.
Feel free to trim up long runners and repot them back into your plant to keep it looking bushy and full. Use sharp, clean scissors and carefully cut just below a leaf node, then remove the leaf at that node and plant that part of the stem, as that is where the roots will form.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
