The Neglected Mock Strawberry

The mock strawberry plant is an attractive, miniaturised version of the edible strawberry plant. It exudes some charm but seems that it is not commonly grown or popular amongst gardeners due to the belief that it can be an invasive plant. In this article, Wilson shares some tips on how one can appreciate this dainty plant whilst still able to exert some control to confine the wandering stolons of this plant.

Hi All,

Sorry for the late reply and I am glad this plant has aroused some interest.

For those who are keen to grow this plant, just to let you know that a 15 cm pot of mock strawberry plant can be purchased from World Farm at a very affordable price.

Hi All,

The plant is actually placed near medicinal herb section under shelter. You will see the sago palms just next to it.

Hi All,

I think we are going a little bit off track! Let's focus this thread on the discussion of the mock strawberry!

Thanks.

the berries r tiny if compared to the strawberry. Slightly bigger than the size of M&M chocolate peanut candy with very faint and subtle favor of strawberry

I think the size depends on the temperature it is grown in. I have seen much bigger ones growing in cold climate. My died after mites attacked it :(/>
