Hedera Helix, commonly known as English Ivy, is a vigorous, aggressive, fast-growing, woody evergreen perennial that is primarily grown as a climbing vine or trailing ground cover. When grown as a ground cover, shear off the tops of the plants in spring to rejuvenate the vines and discourage rodents. The foliage regrows quickly. English ivy seldom needs fertilizer, but if you don‚Äôt think your plants are growing as they should, spray them with half-strength liquid fertilizer.
A warm, moist environment is a breeding ground for bacteria and mould, and that environment can be your home if you aren't careful. Too much indoor moisture can also cause damage all around your home, but something you may not know is that you can help diminish the humidity in your house by keeping a few specific indoor plants. English Ivy will reduce humidity levels because it is one such plant that, despite being watered, will also absorb moisture from the air through its leaves.
