Hedera Helix or Hiedra is an evergreen plant on the araliaceaes family, very popular among the vines, and with many different cultivars.
It is very easy to grow, better in environments a little bit fresh and moist, although we can even grow Ivy in areas close to the sea.
We can sow it with universal substrate, and even better if we add a bit of alkaline soil, with a good drainage to prevent the apparition of fungi.
Hedera is provided of small aerial roots to hold itself.
It supports pruning at any time of the year, which is also necessary, since its growth is quite vigorous even, once established it can become invasive if we do not keep it under control.
We can use slow-release fertilizers, practically all year round.
Normally, Hedera is not attacked by garden pests.
