Please help me identify this plant! It doesn't grow fast like I've read ivy does. I've searched hundreds of photos and haven't found anything that looks like this. Leaves are only about an inch long and it's so scraggly and thin. I don't know how to take care of it I guess.

Maybe Polka Dot Plant (Hypoestes phyllostachya)?

Agree: Polka Dot Plant (Hypoestes phyllostachya)

Needs some direct sun during winter to stay upright.

Thank you! I appreciate the replies. The leaves look a lot like a polka dot plant except aren't those red or are there green ones too? I guess mine is not supposed to look this crappy which is why I thought it was a vine 😂
