Leaves on ivy plant drying out

Postby elizabeth24 » Jul 22, 2011 3:27 pm

My DD bought me an ivy plant, but I am having trouble keeping it alive, as the leaves keep drying out and becoming brittle, None of my other ivy plants are doing this. It is a regualar hedera helix, and does not have variegated leaves, they are all green. What am I doing wrong? Please let me know. Thank you so much.

Check for spider mite. .Sometime you can't see them but the back of the leaf feels gritty. Spray at 7 day intervals with insecticidal soap. Edie

Thank you, I did check for spider mites. No, I do not have any. The underside of the leaves is smooth. I did notice that two leaves near the bottom have brown half moons on them, which I did not see before. I removed both of those leaves. Does anyone know what this could be? This ivy is separated from the others for now. Could I be over or underwatering? I have no idea what the problem is. I do not have this problem with any of my other ivyies, which is why I am wondering what it could be. Thank you so much.
