Hedera helix 'Hibernica'?

Is it a local native ivy you potted up, or a commercially bought cultivar?

Noticed that a leaf turned darker in colour, before was like pure green/yellowish, is it because grew more?

Hover, so, is this Hedera hibernica for sure or helix?


Northumberland, United Kingdom(Zone 9a)

With it being commercially bought, more likely a cultivar of Common Ivy Hedera helix.


Griñón, Madrid, Spain


Today I found one of the plant trunk/stem and some leaves like broken apart from the plant's, like someone would have broken them manually, so I picked it up and put it in a normal flower pot. From my suppose could be nobody, because my mom would not do such thing and my little brother of 12 years old all he does is to play console games.

So, if it wasn't anybody, why/how did the plant do this?
I mention that I gave it water the other night. And today a little as well.

The third photo is the whole plant grown, as far as regarding to the first post, I moved the plant in other flower pot.

Ivy can come up from the roots. Actually, it's notorious for running along just under the surface of the soil and coming up a distance away. I've seen it poke behind house siding and come up around the roof. I've also seen it push it's way through a window from outside in the very small air space around the window and start growing inside.
