January - Devils Ivy
Categorised under the genus Epipremnum, Devil’s ivy is a lush and hardy plant that can survive in minimal light and is almost impossible to kill. This evergreen trailing vine will thrive all year round, although variegated varieties may lose their colour in low-light conditions. Surviving well in a variety of positions, the diverse range of different-hued forms are a perfect accent to any indoor or sheltered outdoor space. Devil’s ivy can be grown as a ground cover, in hanging baskets, in containers or along walls. It will grow to around 6m, but up to 20m in the wild.
Position: grows well in full to partial shade outdoors. Indoors, Devil’s ivy prospers to the greatest extent with bright light, but will also grow in low-light conditions.
Watering: keep moist but allow the surface of the potting mix or soil to dry out between each watering. Usually once a week for indoor plants.
