NASA has published a study a few years ago to determine which plants deprive the room air of normal volatile organic compounds, especially formaldehyde, benzene, trichlorethylene and xylene. As one of the best rated plants, it was just a creeping ivy.
Ivy is a lifetime of 500 years, according to some authors, even 1000 years. Very old individuals can have a trunk up to 1 m in diameter!
Creeping ivy was also known in the symbolism of ancient Egypt and Greece as a symbol of eternal life.Branches or leaves symbolized from ancient times marital loyalty, but also cooperativity, friendship and drunkenness - The God of Harvest, Fertility, Wine, and Lustful Mercy Dionysus, or Bacchus, is depicted with a wreath of ivy.
Warning: Since the ivy is toxic at higher doses, it is used more in medicine and we should be very careful to use it in folk healing!
