It may be that your plant is getting too much water or it might be that the lower leaves are being shed because they are old. To keep your ivy growing vigorously and producing lots of healthy new stems and leaves, simply pinch out the growing tips of each of the stems. This will force new growth lower down on the plant and also encourage the development of new stems. Keep pinching the stem tips back every 3-4 weeks and you'll have a full and bushy plant with lots of healthy new stems. It's important to water regularly, but it's also important to allow the top of the soil to dry out slightly between watering. Enjoy your indoor garden!
