|How do you make more ivy plants - can you cut a piece off and stick in water to root?

|Yes, you can take tip cuttings and root them in water or in soil. Since ivy can develop roots at the nodes (where the leaves are attached to the stems), you can also encourage rooting by pegging or anchoring the stem down so it makes good contact with the earth. If the soil remains moist the stem will develop roots just below a joint or node (where the leaves are growing). Best wishes with your ivy.
