Ivy 'Jessica' - Plant

Hedera helix 'Jessica'
Ivy 'Jessica'

Helps purify the air!

A pretty ivy with unusually decorative leaves which are very unusual in that the white veins are very noticeable. This ivy (Hedera) is also very fast growing indoors, wherever you hang it. It will also thrive outdoors in garden or patio! A strong plant with marked green leaves, easy to care for. Hanging or climbing, it's a frivolous addition anywhere you see it.
This type of climber is air purifying too! There are significant quantities of harmful gases in our homes (check under special comments) which are captured by the leaves of this plant - they then return it all as oxygen! Indoor environments are improved for everyone that uses these plants. Treat yourself to the pure, humidified air given off by this lovely plant.

  • Planting
  • The Ivy plants are supplied in a standard nursery pot. You can repot to a larger planter using humus-rich potting compost. Or you can leave it in the same pot and stand the pot as it is in an attractive planter. A saucer is fine too. Wait until the water has been absorbed or evaporated before watering again – water only when saucer is empty.

    Choose a warm place in the living room for your Hedera helix, but really, a cool spot like a bedroom or bathroom will not be a problem. Do avoid direct sunlight on the plant. The plant will require less water in cooler surroundings.

  • Care
  • Ivy (Hedera helix) prefers (partially) shaded spots! The Hedera helix likes to be kept humid so we recommend spraying the leaves regularly with rainwater, it will then remain beautiful. If the air is too dry, the edges of the leaves will dry and curl. This ivy plant is a fast grower without needing much feeding - if you do feed it, use plant food for leafy plants.

    Water less in the winter keeping the plant slightly drier and cooler. Wait until spring to resume watering and feeding.

  • Specifics
  • Ivy (Hedera helix) comes from the temperate climes of Europe. It grows in woods and forests climbing through the trees but is just as happy creeping along the ground.

    Hedera is self climber, the stems have small suction cups at regular intervals along the stems which helps them to attach onto any surface, they are not feeders.

    Indoors, Hedera is often grown as a hanging plant too - which is not a problem for this plant and it will look very decorative.

    New research has classified Hedera into the ivy family (Araliaceae).
    Sick Building Syndrome
    The harmful gas particles in the house, such as benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene are solvents and are often used in the production of chipboard and other wood household items such as kitchen cabinets and other pieces of furniture - or perhaps even as cleaning agents. These items of furniture often need time to disperse the gases contained in them and are often still dispersing when they already been placed in our homes and offices. This can often lead to a bad atmosphere that can cause headaches either in the home or at the office and the phenomenon is known as 'Sick Building Syndrome'.
