Variegated Algerian Ivy
Hedera canariensis variegata
Louder and more boisterous than his twin brother Hunter, Forest has always been the attention seeker of the two. His bright, shiny variegation always seems to swoon his onlookers. He doesn't let it get to his head though, and is just as low maintenance and adaptable as his brother.
Grows best in bright indirect light and periods of direct exposure.
Once a week, or once top soil is dry to the touch.
Toxic to pets if ingested.
Fast-growing climber or vining plant.
Good for beginners—low maintenance and grows quickly.
Pro-tip: You can train ivy to grow however you'd like. Use fishing line to guide growth, or wrap them naturally around anything in your home.
Ivy are familiar faces in the plant world. You've probably seen them everywhere. Climbing on exteriors of buildings, telephone poles and fences, these guys can cling onto anything.
While most think they're mainly for decor, they actually help buildings moderate indoor temperatures. They keep buildings they cover cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. It's like beautiful insulation.
Ivy attach to surfaces over time by growing tiny roots onto their structures, so don't introduce them to anything sensitive or expensive.
Around 12 inches tall with a container width of 6 inches.
Size will vary.
