ABOUT OUR HEDERA HELIX EVA
Hey! I’m Rapunzel the variegated Hedera Helix Eva. I’m more commonly known as the English Ivy and I think I’m quite a popular houseplant. As you can see from my picture I have beautiful green and white variegation all through my foliage. The coolest thing about me is that no two leaves look the same so each English Ivy will have a completely individual look. It means when you bring me into your home you have a plant that is unique to only your space. My friends Eddie and Marble also grow with individuality and unique leaves.
I’m native to Norway, southern parts of Europe and Northern Africa. I’m traditionally sold as a low/medium light plant which to a certain extent is true. I can certainly tolerate low light and will be just fine in a room with just one small window or not much natural light. You will find my vines growing at an exponential rate when I’m placed in a bright room with a little direct sunlight. Make sure any sunlight I get is either early morning or late evening when the sun is at its coolest.
I’m an adaptable and charming plant that would look incredible gracefully draping down from a hanging pot or basket.
Medium Height (including nursery pot) 19cm; pot diameter 50cm.
Big Height (including nursery pot) 24cm; pot diameter 100cm.

QUICK IVY PLANT CARE
Rapunzel is a suburb beginner plant and won’t fuss over its lighting or humidity conditions.
I’m not picky! Place me in low/medium light or bright light. I will grow faster in brighter light.
Allow the first two inches of my soil to dry. I’m a bit sensitive to overwatering so make sure I have fast draining soil.
I don’t need a humid environment to thrive. Normal household humidity is fine for me.
You can fertilise me with a heavily diluted fertiliser once every 6-8 weeks in the spring and summer. I’m a very fast growing plant and will grow very quickly without fertilising.

THINGS WE ALWAYS GET ASKED
How do you take care of an indoor ivy plant?
Rapunzel should be placed in a room with some natural light. It doesn’t matter how much light he gets but he will certainly grower faster in a bright spot. He can tolerate some direct morning or evening sunlight in the winter months. This particular plant can tolerate cooler evenings and can be placed in a bathroom that gets quite cold during the nighttime. The perfect indoor temperature for Rapunzel is 15ºC-20ºC. The warmer the room the more often you will need to water Rapunzel. The best way to tell if Rapunzel needs a drink is by feeling the first inch of soil with your finger. Rapunzel likes regular watering but his soil should never be soggy or overly wet.
Is English Ivy easy to grow
Yes Rapunzel is an easy plant to grow and will grow very quickly in the spring and summer months. If you’re worried about Rapunzel outgrowing your home then place him in a darker spot with less natural light and his growth will slow down.
Can I put my ivy plant outside?
Yes! You can bring Rapunzel into your garden in the spring and summer months when the weather is much warmer. Place Rapunzel in a semi-shady spot. Bring him inside in September or October when the weather is cooler.
