My strawberry plant is growing in small running brnaches that are kind of twisting and giving creating a bend in the branch. From the location of bend its producing new branches and new leaves. Is there any way to plant it into another pot and multiply the strawberry pots.

Strawberry plants do send out runners and where ends of the runners touch the ground they will produce roots. Leave the runner attached to the new plant (that's where it is getting nourishment) until it develops its own root system. If your strawberry plant is growing in a pot all you need to do is set a small pot of soil beneath the new little plant at the end of the runner. Anchor the stem down with a bent paper clip or small stone to make sure the plant makes good contact with the soil. Keep the soil moist and it will develop roots. When it does, you can snip off the runner and you'll have a brand new plant. Best wishes with your plants!
