My university gifted their graduates potted ivy and I had high hopes of keeping mine forever! However, I've only had it for a couple of months and I unfortunately left the soil dry for too long. I went on vacation and when I returned it was mostly dried and dead and what is left is severely wilted. :( Did I kill it? I really would like to save it, but the advice I've found online is all over the place. Some say water it, others say don't! Some say put it outside, others say leave it indoors! I am terribly confused.
And on top of all of my confusion, I don't even know what type of ivy plant it is! Therefore, I've attached a photo. As you can see the leaves are now spotted brown, with some wilted and others shriveled, while the roots have lost their green color. They are now brownish beige and look more twig-like than greenery. :/ I'm so sad!!
If you think you can help me save it, I would love to hear from you!
Thank so much. :)
