Growing Strawberries From Seeds Instructions

In the video tutorial, Lee harvested about 50 seeds from his Strawberry. He dried the seeds out using absorbent paper and removed excess skin with a spoon.

He then planted the seeds in the compost. After 2 weeks, the seedlings start popping up through the soil. At the end of the 4-week mark, the leaves start to become visible.

At the 7 week mark, Lee re-potted the larger of the plants. He left the weaker seedlings in their existing container to continue growing.

Lee successfully propagated 12 healthy plants through this process. He pointed out that it is extremely important not to overwater your plants, as you can end up with root rot.
