Ramil,  Strawberries are self fertile, but they need the actions of insects, or the wind to transfer the pollen to the correct flower parts in order to produce fruit.  I have windows in my hot room so I do open them to get wind action on my plants and of course the few bugs I have, I battle with like we all do, on a scale that matches the War of the Rose's.  lol

Are there insects in your greenhouse that does the pollination?

I have flowers in mine and have been hand pollinating them, I dont know if its even necessary.

Ramil,  I have NOT pollinated the strawberry plants by hand.   I will be doing a 30 update in a few days. I have LOTs of berrys on the plants now.

Beautiful set-up you have there. Are you hand pollinating the strawberry and how often do you do it?
