Devil’s ivy, pothos, ceylon creeper, hunter’s robe, or as we call it, David. It has so many names because it's one of the most popular houseplant species in the world. There are two reasons for that. 1) It's extremely versatile. It's a fantastic hanging plant, looks great on a shelf or mantelpiece, or can even be trained up a wall. 2) It's incredibly easy to care for. We recommend our 16cm clay pots as the best fit.
In the wild, devil's ivy is usually found in forests in south-east Asia. It grows up the trunks of large trees, happily living in quite deep shade. That's how it gets its name, devil's ivy, because it's a friend of the darkness.
As an indoor plant, its needs are simple. It manages in almost any light conditions, needs infrequent watering and generally just gets on with things. It will appreciate a feed with liquid fertiliser once per month in spring and summer.
This is an ideal beginner’s plant that gives impressive results with very little work from you.
