Id like to grow this as a house plant. I got some from a trail I often walk and it looks heavy but I could keep him nice if I can grow him like my devils Ivy????

The second pic, same thing only I dont recall seeing this before this summer and I hike alot . It dont look like a type of ivy? ? What is that?????? I'dl love to have him hanging from my kitchen window.

If I was to guess I'd say English ivy (Hedera helix) for the first one and a periwinkle (Vinca sp.) for the second.

Hi Pamela:
There are not too many plants that grow outside (in our country) that will be happy houseplants. I will be delighted if they do work out for you though.

Be careful to examine for bugs before bringing them indoors.

It would be better for identification if your picture could let us see the whole plant. I do not know what that first plant is, and the second is a Hedera Helix, of some sort. Of the two I would think your ivy has the best chance of being a house plant. Keep a close eye on it for mites, and bugs. Ivies are buggy for me.

Maybe there will be advice for you that leads to success for these plants from some here. Good Luck.
