On some plants, the ends of new leaves are brown and dry and keep the new leaves from unfolding. On older leaves, there are purple areas, and some edges are dry.
A few weeks ago, I started supplementing the once a day drip water (ph balanced to 6) with nutrient water, with approx 20 ml (4 teaspoons) per plant, a day, general hydroponics grow, micro, bloom 3:2:1 because some new leaves were more yellow in the flesh than green in the veins, and there were some purple areas. And I found http://landresources.montana.edu/soilfertility/nutrientdeficiencies.html
The new leaves having brown dry tips is new since I started the nutrient.
I have been cutting off older leaves as they get really dry or brown.
I have been cutting off the runners and flowers as they start, in an attempt to establish the roots and leaves better first. But now I'm worried I might be missing out on my opportunity to grow berries.
I got these seascape everbearing strawberry as bare root plants via the mail around Nov 15 2018 They grow inside in sterile soil enriched with worm casings, mixed 2 parts soil and 1 part sand.
