It can grow long and lush and bring a bit of the outdoors inside. Growing ivy indoors is easy as long as you know what makes an ivy plant happy.
Let’s learn a little bit more about ivy and proper ivy plant care.
English ivy (Hedera helix) is native to most of Europe and Western Asia.
You may think that the ivy that you commonly see growing on European buildings is purely decorative, but it can actually help modulate the interior temperature, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, and protecting the walls themselves from bad weather and temperature fluctuations.
So it’s basically nature’s insulation and siding, rolled into one elegant vine.
