I found this plant growing by itself all randomly in the back corner of my house, in the crevice between the concrete porch and the wooden fence where there’s a thin little patch of dirt. AMAZING. At first I thought it was that other plant that LOOKS like strawberries…. well, actually, I dunno, I guess it still could be. I’ve kinda been eating the fruit all this time though, I hope they’re edible :P
I sowed alpine strawberry plants something like 3 years ago in containers, and out of something like 8 seeds, only one germinated. I kept that plant alive for 3 years, but one day it died (I’m sure it was my fault somehow, but I couldn’t figure out what I did.)
So my question is… where the hell did this one come from. Did I drop some seeds accidentally and one get blown into the dirt crevice where it patiently waited to grow in the shadows? Did the one plant I keep alive somehow spread seeds? Nature is so mysterious. In any case, I moved this plant when it was younger to its own container with the hopes of longer preservation.
