Rub gently on its skin with fingers to take out its spores.

Sow the strawberry seeds in the growbag and slightly cover them with potting mix.
Place the growbag in a way that seeds get sufficient sunlight on them.
Water the seeds moderately.
Seeds begin to sprout within 15-16 days.
After 35 days, when 3-5 new shoots emerge from the sapling, replant it to a flowerpot.
Water permeable soil is ideal for strawberry.
Fill a flowerpot with 50 pc soil, 40 pc bio compost and 10 pc sand.
Replant the strawberry sapling to the flowerpot.
Irrigate moderately and sustain moisture in the pot.
Mulching with dry leaves is good to keep moisture.
About 6 hours of sunlight is necessary for plant growth.
Give organic fertilizer within 18-22 days after replanting.
Plant begins to bloom within 32 days.
