Place plants in pots with drainage holes to avoid root rot. Do not use a saucer beneath your pot unless filled with pebbles or permeable materials. If possible, use soil-less potting mixture (not dirt) when planting in containers. For maximum bloom, place the plants in an area where they will get 4-6 hours of sunlight per day.
Water thoroughly and allow to dry between waterings. To encourage blooming, deadhead spent flowers and to promote bushiness, pinch the stems. During active growing months, fertilize every 2 weeks. Use a water-soluble fertilizer at half strength. Geranium ivy can be re-potted as needed during the spring. Ivy Geranium care includes consistent moisture and a slow-release fertilizer added to the soil at the time of transplanting.
For minor cuts, apply crushed geranium leaves to stop the bleeding.
