Ivy is one of the most common houseplants around. A classic favorite, it's been loved for generations because ivy is easy to grow as an indoor plant. It tolerates low light, inconsistent watering, and continues to grow. Plus, because ivy is a vine, you can grow it in a hanging basket, let it trail over the sides of a pot, or let ivy climb to become a living curtain.
Grow ivy in medium light for best results. It does tolerate low light, but ivy won't grow as well or last as long in dim spots. Ivy can take bright light indoors, as well, and even a bit of direct sun on its foliage. In general, ivy varieties that have white variegation on their leaves are more susceptible to damage from too much sun.
