The Q&A Archives: Tips Of Ivy Leaves Are Brown

Question: Why are the tips of the leaves keep turning brown on my ivy?

Answer: Your plant may be overwatered or the leaves are reacting to dry air. Try misting the plant every few days to increase humidity, and watering only when the top of the soil dries out. When you do water, thoroughly soak the roots by immersing the pot in a large container of water. Then allow the soil to barely dry out before watering again.

Following the above should improve growing conditions enough to help your ivy thrive.
