You can't get much more classic than the English Ivy. Simple yet elegant, it's air purifying abilities are a bonus to its aesthetic appeal.
Although English Ivy is most commonly grown in hanging pots as a houseplant, you can easily train it to grow up a moss pole, trellis or even the side of a bookcase! It's adaptable nature and eagerness to spread out and explore means that you can be adventurous and experiment with how it best fits in your home.
As it is such a fast grower, your English Ivy will want repotting every couple of years with fresh soil so that it has the space and the nutrients to keep expanding.

Light: Tolerates a shaded position, however can tolerate up to bright indirect light. Finding a middle ground will produce a wider range of colours on the more colourful variants.
Water: Water regularly during growing seasons and keep the soil slightly moist. During winter reduce watering but do not let it dry out.
Food: During growing seasons fertilise monthly to bimonthly. Do not feed during the winter.
Humidity: Will tolerate a range of humidity as long as it stays the same throughout the year. A slightly higher humidity will ensure the healthiest leaves.
