There are so many varieties of ivy. They are most commonly thought of as climbing the outside of houses or being outside in nature. But you can also bring ivy into your home!

pothos plant

The Pothos plant (also known as Devil’s Ivy) is a vine house plant that requires minimal care. It is common for new houseplant owners because it is a hardy, resilient variety. These plants are difficult to kill, and thrive living in water or dry soil. Occasionally these have heart shaped leaves too!

The plant prefers indirect light and a location without drafts. Prune this plant regularly, to keep it healthy and vibrant. Pothos is toxic and should be kept away from pets and children (or choose a different plant on this list if you have pets).

The string of pearls is definitely different in the world of indoor vine plants. This is a succulent that can either be hanging or grow up a framework.

Instead of leaves, this plant grows little round, green beads. The beads will bloom to present white flowers that smell lightly like cinnamon. It is classified as a cascading succulent but considered by many as a vine plant. This plant loves bright areas of indirect light. Direct sunlight causes burning easily, so it should be avoided.

It thrives with a shallow, well-draining pot and biweekly watering. During winter months, watering can be reduced to once a month.

If flowering indoor vine plants are what you seek, consider the Jasmine vine. This vine is a climber with vigorous growing habits. It will require an indoor trellis or other means of support to prevent the stalk from breaking, even while outside.

Jasmine vine house plants benefit tremendously from some time outdoors. Optimal growth can be obtained by partly sunny spots during summer months. As a February bloomer, budding is encouraged by putting Jasmine vines outside during the autumn days for a period of about six weeks. This allows them to be on a seasonal schedule and prepare for the season.

Jasmine is a great plant to grow in the bathroom, because it’s also an odor absorbing plant.

Rex Begonia


Rex Begonia vine house plants have colorful, elongated heart-shaped leaves. This vine climbs by using a network of tendrils. It is a low-maintenance vine that requires warmer temperatures, above 60 degrees, and watering weekly.

This plant prefers bright, indirect lighting. The vines and tendrils of the Rex Begonia are a burgundy hue. The leaves are burgundy on their underneath side. The front side of its leaves are a deep green color with silver-colored patterns and a hint of burgundy peeking through. This is a beautiful indoor vine plant to have in any room.

Begonias are a water loving plant, that can grow new roots by just putting a clipping in some water.

Teddy Bear Vine

Native to South America, the Teddy Bear Vine provides soft, smaller leaves. The leaf colors are a blend of green and shades of brown. The teddy bear vine is one of the few vine species with a fuzzy texture on the leaves. This vining plant prefers medium to bright lighting.

Although this is a vine, it prefers to hang instead of climb. Try planting this vine in a hanging basket and let it flow down.

Teddy bear vines grow slowly in comparison to other vine species. During late spring to early fall seasons, the vine sprouts small flowers in shades of mauve. Some varieties may have violet-blue flowers.

Inch Plant

The Inch Plant actually has a few different names. Some people know this unique plant as the Purple Heart or Wandering Jew. It is easily distinguished by its silver zebra pattern on the leaves and contrasting purple hues.

Inch Plants prefer hanging baskets or flat surfaces where the vines can spread out. They prefer medium to bright light and do well with small amounts of direct sunlight. Soil should be kept slightly moist and watering should not be done directly through the plant’s crown to avoid rot.
