The gorgeous Polynesian Ivy vine is an easy care houseplant. They don’t ask for much, but give in the way of beautiful foliage. They do offer blooms but they are considered insignificant in the houseplant community and it would be best to pull them off to redirect energy back to the plant.
This houseplant love bright indoor light preferably from an east facing window. Some direct light from the east facing window is also appreciated. During the summer months the Polynesian Ivy does well being placed in a shady spot in the garden. You will be surprised at how much growth houseplants can put on when they spend the summer in the garden.
The Polynesian Ivy houseplant prefers moist soil. The best way to maintain moist not wet soil is to allow only the soil surface to dry before watering. Keeping soil moist can be pretty tricky for new plant parents but thankfully this plant is forgiving if you let it get a little more dry then it should. I have not found this ivy to be very picky with soil as long as it’s not a cactus based soil mix. Because you want this plant to maintain moisture you do not need a sharp draining soil. I use Promix soil for 90% of my houseplants and they do great!
The Pellionia Pulchra is a severely underrated houseplant. When you take proper care of your plant it will reward you with lots of growth.
