Dark green English Ivy dying.

Asked January 12, 2016, 9:26 AM EST

What is going on? I bought a beautiful full dark green English Ivy in hanging basket for indoors. It gets plenty of light from lamp & some from window. All of a sudden in the middle of the plant the leaves are drying up and dying. Some leaves at the end of the vines are wilting. Sprayed for spider mites but not sure that is the problem. Do not over water. I had a silver ivy that did the same thing and lost it completely.

Good Morning. Many times when plants are purchased, re-potting into a larger pot may be necessary to provide ample root space and additional nutrition. Small fertilizer spikes, granules or liquid fertilizer may help supplement soil nutrients as well. Good luck and hopefully this will help you save your Ivy.
