The Hedera helix, more commonly known as “Common Ivy” or “English Ivy”, is an evergreen climbing plant native to Europe and Western Asia. Often grown outdoors as an ornamental ground-cover, the “English Ivy” is a very versatile plant that can be grown indoors as well. Preferred to be kept slightly on the drier side, the top of the soil should be dry to the touch before watering. Overwatering will cause leaves to turn brown and become dry on the edges, but underwatering also poses problems causing the plant to become stressed, which in turn can make it more susceptible to disease or insect infestations. Ivies can tolerate low to bright indirect light, but lower light levels will slow growth, and the variegated leaves will become less pronounced becoming more uniformly green. Thriving best in cooler temperatures, placing the “English Ivy” in a cool location with air movement is ideal. Results from a clean air study performed by NASA show that the “English Ivy” has the ability to remove volatile organic pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and toluene. Keep the air in your home clean by adding this wonderful trailing plant to your collection.

The Epipremnum aureum, more commonly known as “Golden Pothos”, “Devil’s Ivy”, or “Cascading Pothos”, has the reputation of being one of the easiest and most forgiving houseplants to take care of making it the perfect choice for the beginner plant enthusiasts. This tropical aroid vine with smooth and leathery heart-shaped leaves are native to Southeast Asia, and can tolerate low light conditions and periods of drought. Give your pothos a drink when the leaves start to droop or wilt, but be sure not to allow roots to get soggy as that can lead to root rot. Although tolerant of all indirect light levels ranging from low to bright, the pothos will be fullest, most colorful, and grow fastest in medium to bright light. In addition to the greenery the “Devil’s Ivy” brings to your home, results from a clean air study performed by NASA show that it also has the ability to remove volatile organic pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene. Place on a high shelf or ledge to showcase the beautiful cascading vines that will trail and spill over, growing to 10 feet long over time.
