Hi all,
I'm not really a beginning houseplant keeper (or at least I don't consider myself one! ;) but I was wondering why the leaves of my new tri-color Strawberry Plant are cupping downward. (See photo.) It gets plenty of light (south window or artificial light depending on the weather) and water and it is growing just great -- by leaps and bounds, in fact. Is this something that new leaves tend to do? Will they flatten out later? It's been so long since I've owned one of these plants I can't remember how they SHOULD look.
