Variegated Ivy

Anonymous added on January 28, 2014 | Answered

I love ivies but don't have any luck with them. I just purchased another one, and my question is: why do they get leggy? All my plants are like that. What can I do to keep them "bushy"? Thank you.

They get leggy because they are not getting enough light. You will need to move them to a brighter location or provide some supplemental light like a florescent light. You can also try pinching them to help them grow more bushy. This article will explain more on that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/pinching-plant.htm
