Rooting Ivy

Martha Stewart Living, March 2003

Layering is one of the simplest ways to propagate ivy; a "baby" plant attached to its nurturing parent helps it root faster. Extend a single stem from the parent plant and anchor it with a floral pin in the middle of a four-inch pot filled with potting mix. Keep evenly moist and out of direct sunlight. In eight to 10 weeks, rooted stems can be cut away from the original plant.
