Devils Ivy 'Epipremnum'

Devils Ivy is a great plant for beginners or those wanting low fuss. This plant is easy care, low maintenance and fast-growing. It's tolerant of most light conditions (including low light) and is super hardy. 

A great plant to trail, in a hanging basket or on a high table or shelf, cascading down. You could also train the vines to climb around a wall or window by attaching them to hooks.

Light

This plant is known for it's tolerance of a variety of light conditions. As is the general rule for most plants, it will grow best in bright, indirect light - avoiding direct sun - but this beauty will grow in lower light too.  

Water

To care for this plant let the top layer of soil dry out in between waterings and water the soil not the plant to avoid fungal infections.  

Maintenance

Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth occasionally to remove the dust that accumulates on the leaves to support photosynthesis, very dusty leaves can't absorb sunlight.

Botanical name: Epipremnum aureum 'Green Dragon'
