    I am brand new to gardening. I specifically want to start gardening career with simply growing strawberries indoors. I work weekends, typically 12 hour shifts, and am wondering if my strawberry plants can go without watering for 12 hours? Also, will T5 lighting accommodate the plant to thrive? Anything else I need to know? Thank you.
