Devils Ivy (Epipremnum Varieties (c)

Epipremnum or Devil’s Ivy is a tough super easy and versatile house plant. Perfect for a hanging basket or train up a totem. Devil’s Ivy is very tolerant of the full range of indirect light conditions including a lower light spot. Epipremnum is a large genus with several common cultivars available including a vibrant neon lime green and the variegated “snow” and “marble” queen varieties. Epipremnums natural growth habit is to grow up whilst climbing on something, so if given a totem or wall outside, a devil’s Ivy can actually start producing very large leaves.

Watch out If growing inside, always keep in the plastic nursery pot. Sit it inside a cover pot.

Yellowing or black leaves usually means overwatering. Ensure you allow the soil to dry out completely between watering. A good guide is to feel the foliage and when it feels softer than normal it’s ready for watering. The pot will also feel light and ready for water.

Loosing foliage? Cut back and allow it to regrow. Look at how often you are watering to ensure you are allowing it to dry out.
