different varieties near my entryway,
where they're nice and cool...they grow

leaves are turning brown at the edges

discoloring, then you have some kind of
root/soil/watering problem. If it is
just older leaves that are discoloring,

Thanks, Will! I'll be popping that ivy
out of it's pot, then and check the
soil/roots. Some of the plants at that

you post in awhile...nice to 'see you'
again! Thanks again for your advice!
