English ivy doesn't need much light to thrive. Outdoors, it is a shade plant. It may grow faster with more light provided that the soil stays moist and nutrient levels are OK. Indoor ivy needs very little fertilizer. Place long-acting beads or granules atop the soil in spring. Don't use grow lights if they will warm the soil or scorch the leaves. Ivy doesn't do well in full sun conditions.
You may try putting it under horticultural lighting. This can happen due to a lack of light.
There could be a few things causing this. Watering will be important. Make sure to only water after the soil has gone almost completely dry down to 2 or 3 inches.
The issue could also be with the soil. The soil may contain too strong of a nutrient concentration. This can cause burning of the leaves, as well.
Can you describe in detail how you care for this, and the environment around the plant?
As mentioned before this was bought by me few days ago so apart from watering it twice a week I didn't did anything to take care of it. And I have kept it inside on a table near the west window.
It may likely need more light. You may have to try putting it somewhere where there is much more light, or if that is not possible, then you may need to put it under horticultural lighting.
I chopped down my ivy tree over 3 years ago. I have followed a gardener’s advice and used a strong weed killer to kill the stump by drilling a hole in the centre and pouring the weed killer in it. This didn’t work. There’s ivy still growing near the edges of my garden fences. Any suggestions how to get ride of it?
Stump drilling with herbicide applications can work but needs to be drilled deep enough into the stump.
Pulling up the suckers as soon as you see them will help. You can also apply herbicide to these suckers by painting the leaves with a herbicide.
It can take time.
Leaf spots on ivy are caused by a bacterial or a fungal pathogen. Avoid overhead watering which is a common means of spreading the disease. The following article has some more information.
The ivy may not be English ivy, but the information to remove the vine is the same.
