The Q&A Archives: How to care for Ivy plant

Question: My ivy plant is limp, wimpy on one side. What to do? I've used different pot, new potting soil, it wont grow and it wilting. I also keep it in the house. Please help?

Answer: Debora,

Something is wrong in the roots or the base of the stem. Usually this is due to a root rot. These are often brought on by overwatering. If the damage is not too severe you may be able to save it by simply keeping the soil only slightly moist. Otherwise you will need to ask at a local garden center for a fungicide labeled for root rots.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
