Prayer Plant Ivy – These stunning house plants have patterned leaves. And at night time they raise and lower their foliage as if bringing their hands together in prayer.
The Ivy plant (Hedera) is an evergreen creeper from the family Araliaceae. The most commonly grown ivy is known as the English ivy (Hedera helix). However, that is but one in many types of ivies that can infuse your life with greenery.
Your plant will creep or climb up the fences and walls of your office by the help of aerial roots. Their nectar-rich flowers, which appear in umbel clusters in late fall, are borne in umbel clusters. The fruits are berries, and they are a major source of food for birds during the winter.
Having ivy in the workplace really brightens up the place. It covers buildings and stretches across the ground and enshrouds you with its beauty. The leaves almost resemble hearts bringing vitality in an otherwise inanimate workspace.
The ivy plant will give the workers and clients cleaner air to breathe. The plant is rich in plant compounds, called saponins and flavonoids. These act as a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds. It can also reduce cough.
Light and Temperature Requirements – Give your plant medium light. Not too much, not too little. If you grow it indoors in little light, the plant is likely to die faster.
Soil Conditions – The ivy plant needs fertile and moist soil. The pH level should be from neutral to slightly alkaline. Make sure that the soil is well-drained. A thick layer of mulch in the summers can help the soil from drying out.
Water Requirements – Like light, you need to find a balance with water too. Overwatering will cause brown leaves and dried edges. Underwatering will make the plant susceptible to insect infestations or disease. So, while watering the plant take breaks to see how much water has been abroad.
Food Requirements – You can fertilize the plant once every two weeks during the spring and summer. Using a 20-20-20 fertilizer or a 2-2-2 organic formula. When the plant has stopped bearing leaves or if there is extreme weather, do not use any kind of fertilizer or plant food.
