Mint Kolibri Ivy
English Ivy 'Mint Kolibri', aka Hedera Helix Mint Kolibri or Mint Kolibri Ivy, is a vigorous, easy-to-grow houseplant, with a fairly simple car regime as the cherry on top. Its dark green leaves with irregular mint and cream variegation and trailing habit make for an eye-catching display in any home.
They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.
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 need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
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. If you miss a watering or two and your ivy wilts, don't worry -- it should recover after you give it a splash of water, just take care not to overwater ivy. If your plant is given a totem to climb, it should develop bushier, more mature growth and develop sharper, triangular leaves with no lobes.
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.
