Epipremnum Aureum Green Dragon 120mm
Devils Ivy are a super easy fast growing climber with a beautiful dark green glossy leaf. Able to tolerate a range of light conditions, easy with watering and a super fast grower, it's a plant you'll often see trailing across bookshelves and taking over rooms.
Care Level - Easy. Tolerating most indoor light conditions, uneven watering schedules and not prone to pests, Devils Ivy is perfect for beginners or green thumbs alike.
Light - Devils Ivy will tolerate low to bright light, but it will thrive in bright indirect light so condider this for best growth. Too much hot sun, such as western sun in the hottest months can lead to leaf burn, so keep an eye on position during summer.
Water - Water deeply around once a week, less in winter and more when soil is drying out quickly in our hot summers. This being said, this one is pretty hardy so just keep an eye out for drooping leaves, when the plant is telling you it's thirsty.
Food - In warmer growing months, give a quality liquid fertiliser monthly for the best growth, but hold off during winter.
Propagation - Devils Ivy is very easy to propagate. You can cut the stem either side of a leaf keeping the node, and sit the stem in water to grow roots in a well lit spot. Once the roots have grown a bit, the rooted cuttings can be potted up into soil to continue to grow. Best to prop in warmer months for best results.
Soil - Devils Ivy love a well draining soil, thats light, chunky but still retails moisture. Potting mix with added coco peat is great, and some perlite will assist in drainage. It will still tolerate many soil types so even a low quality potting mix isn’t going to make this guy throw a tantrum. Plants with huge trailing growths can be supported by a minimal amount of soil, and its a great plant to eperiment with growing in hyro.
Pets - All devils ivy are toxic if eaten, so keep this one away from your fur babies if they are prone to eating your plants.
