Water-grown Ivy Wilting??

8 years ago
last modified: 8 years ago

I have a large sprig of variegated ivy that's been growing fine in water for a year now. The roots haven't developed much, but it's been getting new, healthy growth, etc... I've fertilized it with diluted liquid fertilizer once every month or so, changed the water every month or so, and it's done fine. However, as of the last 24 hours, the leaves' stems are just constricting, drooping over, and then the leaves turn brown and limp where the stem meets them. What in the world??

I recently moved, so its conditions changed from bright sun and hard water to part-sun and soft water. But it was looking a little under the weather even before the move, with a couple new leaves that went brown and crispy. What's going on? Can I do anything to save it?
