No, this English Ivy has not been dubbed the golden child for being perfect. The golden yellow edges and green interior with thin white veined leaves is how it earned its name, and it sort of reminds me of the Green Bay Packers logo… #GoPackGo! Okay so, maybe it is perfect.
Like other ivy, “Gold Child” is an evergreen vining plant, typically a climber, so it would pair well with a trellis, but could also be left to trail. It can tolerate a wide range of temperatures and requires minimal maintenance – just keep the soil moist.
Nursery Pot Disclaimer: The nursery pot your plant arrives in is crucial to proper water drainage. To prevent overwatering and eventually root rot we recommend leaving your plant in the nursery pot, and if desired find a similar size decorative pot to place your nursery pot in.
Care Suggestions (varies by home environment)
Light: Medium to bright indirect light.
Water: Keep the soil continuously moist throughout spring and summer by spraying the soil and water once soil begins to dry out. A daily misting would also keep this plant happy.
Fertilizer: Fertilize once a month with a general purpose houseplant fertilizer during Spring and Summer.
