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.
Epipremnums were first discovered in French Polynesia and have become acclimatised to sub-tropical forests globally. Preferring a humid or temperate environment, they can withstand occasional periods of cold, but will not survive frost. In the cooler winter months, additional misting of tepid water will create a humid environment. Moderate diffused light is recommended for the foliage to retain its colour and variegation.
Devil’s ivy is poisonous to cats and dogs, and harmful to humans if ingested, so avoid placing Devil’s ivy on the floor inside if this is a significant risk. Instead, place it up high within a hanging basket, or on a shelf.
