Is it this one?

RE: cool ivy care???

Ala, please note, Pellionia is not a true Ivy. It's a creeper, needs high humidity. Larger species look good in hanging baskets.

Pellonia/Polynesian Ivy grows on a huge rock at our local conservatory.

I like its color. Toni

RE: cool ivy care???

I think that this a super easy plant to grow under normal home conditions. I had one for years some time ago and gave countless rooted cuttings away. Clipping some of the stems back to the crown occasionally is key in maintaining a full, dense appearance.

ok so yes @ purple it is that one in the pic I believe but not a EA plant. Where iv got it all of the arms are sticking straight up to the ceiling I am thinking I have it in too low of light if its reaching up to the light.....can someone tell me if the growing conditions resemble that of a maranta?

Wish I could help, sorry, not ignoring your question. Sounds like others know your plant, though. I was just intrigued by the mention of "Polynesian ivy" and found that link via search. Maybe you could post a pic to get more specific info that that already given?
