Could you tell me what this plant is, and what kind/amount of light it likes? It seems to be not as healthy and thriving as when I bought it from someone last week.
Your plant is a Grape Ivy. Here are some care tips for Grape Ivy houseplants:
Grape Ivy Plants require medium to high light, though new varieties such as Ellen Danica and Mandianna Ivies can live in lower light conditions. If the stems of a Grape Ivy Plant stretch toward the light and new leaves are further apart on the stem, move your Grape Ivy Plant to a brighter location.
Water well and then allow the top 50% of the soil of a Grape Ivy Plant to dry out before watering again.
Fertilize a Grape Ivy Plant every other month when it is actively growing with a basic houseplant food at 1/2 the recommended strength. A Grape Ivy Plant should not be fed in the winter. Yellow leaves on a Grape Ivy Plant usually means the plant needs more food.
Grape Ivy Plants can handle temperatures from 40-90 degrees, although growth slows above 80 degrees. The ideal temperature for a Grape Ivy Plant is 60-80 degrees.

Most people kill Grape Ivy houseplants by over watering. Brown crunchy leaves are an indication of over – NOT under-watering. There’s a product called SuperThrive that you can read about in the Glossary of the website that does wonders for stressed plants.
