English Ivy - Drying leaves?

Ok, this is my second foray into attempting Ivy. I killed the last batch. It's indoors.

It looks like the leaves are whitening / drying out. The soil is still moist, maybe a bit too much? Or is the problem in the photos more to do with too much sunlight / heat?

I thought I had this "indirect sunlight" down.

I can't really tell by looking at the photos - they look very good to me. I can't imagine this thing being that easy to It looks like the container is quite large for the plant. Try to let the entire container dry out a bit, and if you must give the plant water try to avoid soaking the entire pot, just feed it directly where the ivy is.

What's the humidity in the growing area like? And the temperature? You're probably just fine with the lighting, albeit it could be too much. Also, did you just bring them in from outside? They might be adjusting to their new surroundings if so.. Exposure is west or south? Or?.
