Answer: Your ivy was probably just losing some of its older leaves (they only last 2-3 years!). Aside from pinching out the growing tip to encourage new leaf development, there's not much else you can do to keep your plant full. Ivy can grow rather long stems, which do become bare after a while. Pinch it back and you'll be rewarded with several new stems, sporting lots of new leaves. Ivy likes soil on the dry side, lots of bright light, and an occasional misting if the indoor air is dry.
