I felt bad for losing the mommy Strawberry plant for a while. Just this morning, when I repotted the remaining plants, I realise how soggy the soil was. I’m now surprised that even these 4 plants survived the kind of soil atmosphere I subjected them to. Strawberry plants do not like ever wet soil conditions, they prefer properly drained out soil conditions. I have now moved them to pots with 75% coco peat, which will help in draining excess soil and keep the moisture, so I can water them only when needed.
Well, this is an expensive lesson learnt. I had to lose 5 plants before realising my mistake! Hope the other plants are in better place now.
