I bought this new ivy for my house. He told me that this was a geranium(sp?) ivy. Is that what this is?

He told me to keep it moist but don't drown it and I could use my miracle grow on it, it should be kept inside out of direct sunlight. I just fell in love with this. I have been eyeing it for some time but wanted to wait until the price was right, finally got it!

I just snip off a piece and put the bottoms in water til they grow roots, if it has a woody stem then I scratch a bit off the base then dip it in rooting powder then stick it in soil.

I've never has this plant but I've done this several times with other ivy's.
