Q.Indoor strawberries

Zone a0k2j0 | Toby Randell added on November 13, 2017 | Answered

I’ve been growing strawberry plants indoors from bought seeds now for about 3 months and the plants are growing pretty good and quickly and even one strawberry pod has started but my plants are starting to look smaller and smaller with each new plant,….. Should I start plucking some or all of the plants that doesn’t have pods on them, or will they grow back, and I’ve been using a special type of miracle grow the whole time because that’s what it instructed on the kit I bought is this ok?? And last question is… I use a wood stove to heat my house and it’s always 30 degrees Celsius downstairs where my plants are for best sunlight, it’s 26 degrees Celsius upstairs but not as good for sunlight, but what should I be doing in this case with my plants?? please help please I love strawberries. I am thanks Toby

It will be necessary to thin some of them out. If they overcrowd then they will compete for nutrients. Depending on the kind of miracle grow, usually I don't recommend using this. Especially if it is urea based, as this requires a certain microbe in the soil to break it down. If it is meant for strawberries, then I would say it is fine to use.

Keep in mind that strawberries will require a dormancy in winter so they can regenerate and fruit properly.
