Swedish Ivy or Spurflower is actually indigenous to South Africa. It grows quickly into a lush trailing plant and is pretty easy to care for too! Enjoy masses of bright lime green leaves contrasted with rich violet undertones.

Comes in a 14cm grow pot

Caring for Sven

Light

If grown indoors Spurflowers enjoy bright light year round. They can also grow outdoors in shade, and are popular as a groundcover.

Water & humidity

Let the top 2cm of soil dry out between watering. It doesn't like to dry out too much, but also doesn't want to be constantly moist. Swedish Ivy prefers to stay at a constant room temperature throughout the year, but is not too phased about humidity.  

Feeding

Feed once a month in the growing season.

Re-potting

Re-pot every 2-3 years. Trailing plants don't have big roots systems, so can be pot bound. Only use a well-draining potting mix with added perlite.

Atrium Top Tip

Pruning is essential to retain its bushy appearance. Prune in Spring by pinching new growth, and cutting any old woody stems.

Quirky Plant Fact

In some countries, Swedish Ivy is said to bring good fortune, and is nicknamed the 'money plant'. Interestingly, it does not come from Sweden and is not actually an ivy. It got it's name because it became a popular houseplant in Sweden in the 1980s. It's related to the mint family.
