Ivy houseplants require an evenly moist and relatively humid environment, consistent temperature, and occasional pruning. They thrive in an environment of bright filtered to low light, as excessive heat can lead to drying. The most important part of Ivy care is light, Ivy will love bright light. Ivies also prefer to be kept slightly on the dry side so let the top 1 or 2 inches dry before you water the Ivy again. Drainage is important for the Ivy as Ivy doesn't like to be standing in water or overly wet soil.
