Devil's Ivy

by Suzi Tehan

LIGHT:  Bright light with no direct sunlight. 

WATERING:  During the warmer months of the year these plants should be watered regularly and kept moist but not waterlogged.  Allow the top of the soil to dry out before rewatering. 

NUTRIENT:  Fertilize once or twice monthly during the warmer months with half-strength liquid fertilizer high in nitrogen.  Organic fertilizers such as fish emulsion or seaweed extracts can also be used.  Don’t feed during Winter. 

TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY:  Keep humidity high particularly in hot weather, double potting may be helpful for this.  These plants need fresh air but must be kept out of draughts and away from cooking fumes.  Try to keep temperatures at room temperature all year round.
