More than likely-I could bore you with the proper way to take cuttings but ivy seems capable of growing without our help

With long strands of ivy it'll probably work.  Rooting the 'arborial' or flowering stage of the ivy is a bit more temperamental in my experience and if you want to root this and grow it as a bush I would root it in water on a windowsill.

I have an ivy in a wall pot that I keep as a stock plant. When I plant my baskets for Spring or Autumn I just snip a piece off and shove it in the baskets . Maybe I'm just lucky but it roots everytime.

I grow a yellow ivy called buttercup. I used to root this very easily from cuttings. Everybody wanted it so I was kept busy propagating it. As jean says they "root every time"
