With the right care, it can grow as a long trailing ivy. You might even find small white and yellow flowers emerging from pink buds in the summer. To get there, keep it in bright indirect light. If the plant starts looking leggy and pale, it could be a sign it's not getting enough light. Water the soil directly to prevent leaves rotting when they collect water.
