So when we breed strawberries, we'd better put them on the balcony in a sunny and ventilated environment. It's better to have about 6 hours of light in a day, and pay attention to shade in summer.
Strawberries like to grow in a humid environment, but we can't water them too much. If we water them too much, it will easily cause water in the basin and rot of the plants. For strawberry watering, we can use pot leaching to supplement water. The method is as follows:
1. It can be taken out after soaking for 10-15 minutes;
2. It is better to put it in a ventilated environment when carrying out water supplement.
Strawberries don't need much fertilizer. It's better to use common compound fertilizer to apply fertilizer. When applying fertilizer, the fertilizer should be buried in the soil around the plant. The amount of fertilizer must be determined according to the growth of the plant. If the fertilizer is too much and too thick, it will easily burn the root of the plant. Pay attention to the too thick fertilizer.
