Hands down, Devil’s Ivy (Epipremnum aureum) is the best indoor plant ever! Why? Well, this tough trailing plant will grow virtually anywhere - from hanging baskets to troughs or even cuttings placed in a glass vase. It can handle dimly lit rooms and will forgive you for the times you forget to water – seriously, what’s not to love?


How to grow devil's ivy in a pot

  1. Choose a pot at least 200mm wide. Position in a well-lit spot indoors that's protected from direct sunlight. Fill with quality potting mix, such as Yates Thrive Indoor Plants Potting Mix.
  2. Remove the plant from the container, gently tease the roots and cut away any circled or tangled roots. Give the foliage a light prune to encourage new shoots.
  3. Position in middle of pot and backfill with potting mix, gently firming down. Water in well.
  4. Water when the potting mix is dry – insert your index finger to the first knuckle, if it’s dry, water and if it feels moist, leave watering for a few more days. 
  5. Feed fortnightly from spring to autumn with Yates Thrive Indoor Liquid Plant Food or use a Yates Thrive Indoor Plants & Ferns Dripper which feeds for 4 weeks.
