Original Message Indoor Ivy
Your plants may have an infestation of an insect called Thrip. Check the undersides of the leaves for small black dots. It may also be spider mite and they would appear on the undersides of the leaves as very fine webbing. Use insecticidal soap to control both of these insect pests.
Another possibility could be that you are overwatering, especially if the plant is in a cache pot. Roots allows to sit in standing water will rot, causing the plant to eventually fail.
