It has the interesting and lovely leaf shape of the Fatsia, which can be seen growing along the roadsides throughout the tropical world, and the cultural requirements and basic climbing habit of its ivy parent. Fatshedera does not grip like a true ivy, however, and will need to be staked up. Once properly staked, the plant's stems will go quite long and form a really interesting border to a bright window. Also from its ivy parentage, it inherited a fondness for cooler temperatures, relatively high humidity, and a more open growing habit. In general, if you can grow successful ivy, you will be able to grow outstanding Fatshedera.
