About Devil's ivy

Devil’s ivy, Golden pothos, Ceylon creeper, Hunter’s robe, or as we call them, Rapunzel. They have so many names because they’re one of the most popular houseplants in the world. There are two reasons for that. 1) They’re versatile, looking great in a pot on a table but at their best when placed high up, or hanging, so those long stems can dangle, and 2) They’re incredibly easy to care for.

Devil’s ivy will manage in low light (that’s how it got the name, because it’s a friend of darkness), needs infrequent watering and generally just gets on with things. This is an ideal beginner’s plant that gives impressive results with very little work from you.

Did you know?

In the wild, they can reach up to 20-metres tall, so there’s a growing challenge for you.
