Water thoroughly, then allow soil to become moderately dry before watering again. Likes bright, full, or filtered sunlight, but will tolerate lower light. I had good luck with this plant hanging in the far corner of a large classroom which only had high narrow horizontal windows, although they were facing south. I recently ordered this from my local florist and it arrived labeled as 'Danish Ivy' with no botanical name. The grower was from British Columbia so perhaps it is known up north by this alternate name.
