Here are some photos of my strawberry plant to share. I placed them under the sun for about 3 hrs and then at some ventilated place for the rest of the day. Enjoy!

Hello everyone,
Strawberries can actually grow and bear fruit in SG.
However, you must know that there are two kinds of strawberries; day neutral and short day varieties.
Day neutral varieties will always bear fruit as long as the temperature is around 28 degrees. Day neutral strawberries are the types grown in Cameron highlands
and are the type of strawberry plant that WF sells.
Short day strawberries on the other hand need variations in day length in order to bear fruit.
So if you grew a short day variety in SG it would only grow and produce runners.
Short day varieties are more common and thus, seeds from the strawberries that you planted are likely
to be short day unless those strawberries were from Cameron highlands.
In conclusion, some of your strawberries may not be fruiting because they are short day.
The best thing to do is buy a matured strawberry from WF or FEF.

Hello Slapper!


I like to ask a few questions:
1. where did you buy the plant from?
2. if not purchased, did you grow them from seeds?
3. if yes, where did you buy the seeds from?
4. were they sweet to eat?


Thank you!

Does anyone have a strawberry plant which can produce medium sized fruits which taste okay in our climate?

I have a strawberry tip that I learnt from a farmer who grew strawberries from supermarket seeds in our climate.
As soon as his strawberry plants flowered, he put them it a very dark area.
The strawberries would grow and grow but they will not ripen.
Then when you are happy with the size of the strawberry than expose the plant to full sun and the fruits would ripen.

Don't strawberry seed always die and it is so diffucult to grow them?
Well you can try growing the seeds on cotton wool like green beans and than transfer to soil.
I have done it and it works quite well.


Thank you

Will the plant die in dark area? My strawberry plants have flowered and fruited. I was thinking on how to make the green berries grow bigger. Should I remove some berries to let the bigger ones grow bigger? Each stalk has 2x 3 berries.
