Thanks, Al. I really like that word "Curl" since I see it curls!... Hahaha.

I think that might be the actual cultivar name, Xuan. Do an image search for "Hedera helix 'Golden Curl'" and see if you think that's your plant.

In fact I did Google but I could not find any photo that match my plant :-(

Also, the variegated parts on my plant is whitish, not golden Al.

Huhuhu... it's not Golden Curl, what can it be?

Don't know, my friend. There are many, many cultivars of Hedera helix. (puts his palms up & shrugs)

Maybe Glasshouse Works photos would be helpful?

I believe the name of your plant is hedera canariensis 'Variegata ( also known as 'Gloire-de-Marengo'). I hope this helps. I found the information from my plant book. This book is very helpful. Its called the Complete Guide to Houseplants by Ortho Books.

Thank you very much, Mel.

I googled the name and found my plant somewhat looks like this "Ivy Parsley Crested", although the variegated edge is... white instead of yellow, as in the photo.
