Algerian Ivy: The Protector 

Some cultures believe that Ivy has protective and healing powers, in particular, to ward off negative energy. As this plant grows, envelope your home with its magic and watch it decorate your walls. No time for negative energy here! 

Key Benefits: Air Purifying

Ivy is one of the top 10 air purifying houseplants! It will purify the air in your home, clearing toxins such as carbon monoxide, benzene and formaldehyde from the surroundings. 

Is this the right plant for me?

Algerian Ivy is easy to care for. Under the right conditions, it will grow fast and quickly become a spectacular plant in your home. An excellent plant choice to adorn a dull wall or enliven any room with plant life. As a trailing vine plant, it will require some support to grow around the room. Being such a keen and vigorous growing plant, it will require some pruning, but this is a simple task. 

Plant Care Tips: 

  • Light: Algerian Ivy likes lots of bright, indirect light and will also grow well under artificial light. It can also tolerate lower light levels, but watch out for spindly growth which indicates light levels are too low. 
  • Water: This plant likes moist soil, and will benefit from watering once or twice a week during the spring and summer months. Do not let the soil surface dry out too much. 
  • Soil: This Ivy will love a rich compost that is well-draining. Add perlite and organic matter to an all-purpose compost to create your own perfect potting mix. 
  • Humidity: Algerian Ivy likes humidity. Regularly mist the plant with clean water to increase the humidity levels. 
  • Fertilizer: Feed your Algerian Ivy in spring with a liquid fertilizer. Continue to feed once a month throughout the growing season and stop in the colder months. 

Algerian Ivy Common Problems & Questions:

Why are the leaves of my Algerian Ivy crispy?

With Ivy, this is often a sign of overwatering. This plant likes to sit in moist soil, but it won’t like being wet. Ensure your container has adequate drainage holes and avoid leaving it to sit in any excess water that may collect in the tray after watering. If the soil is too heavy, this is also likely to be part of the problem. You could pot up with a well-draining soil mix with additional vermiculite, which holds moisture in the soil for when the plant needs it. 

How often should I prune my Algerian Ivy?

In the spring and summer months, you can prune your Ivy whenever you notice it is growing long and leggy, or simply when it needs cutting back to maintain its vigorous growth. This is a hardy plant that will bounce back from regular pruning. Use a sharp pair of scissors to cut just above a leaf node. 

Is my Algerian Ivy susceptible to pests and diseases?

Common pests of this plant are scale, mealy bugs, aphids and spider mites. It can also be susceptible to fungal infections. In cases of infestation, treat with an insecticidal soap spray. You can prevent fungal infections by ensuring good airflow in the room and not overcrowding the plant.
