Hello all!
My parents received this ivy as a wedding present years ago, and they were never told what kind it is. It's pretty hardy, all they do is water it occasionally and it seems to flourish. Could anyone help me identify the species? I can get more pictures if needed.
Thanks in advance!

Not really an ivy. Called "Devils Ivy." Photos. Google those. Gene

Not ivy but it does have the common name of "Devil's Ivy" and "Pothos" Pothos (Epipremnum aureum)

@Rekos have you ever tried to root a cutting of your devilishly handsome plant friend? Before I realized I was rooting pothos, I had lots of rooted pothos, hah. Pothos is extremely easy to root in water, with relatively small cuttings. If you ever wanted (or want) another of your friend (or five Big Grin ) you could experiment with some pothos rooting!

Best of luck to you and your green friend! Smiling
