I have strawberries growing in my system and they are not growing well. One is doing fine but the rest are hardly even growing. The fruits they are producing are tiny. I also have cherry tomatoes growing and they have gone very well. Any help as to why my strawberries are not doing well?

What's the water pH?... Strawbs prefer a low pH and do best down around 5.8... but you def' don't want your system pH down that low.

In saying that, they will still do well if you keep the pH at around the 6.7-6.8 sweet spot for AP systems.
