By the colour of the leaves and the fact your growing them in sand and rice husks I’d say you have a major nutrient deficiency. Phos and potash will be the first I’d look at. not sure wat requirements are for strawberrys but a balanced healthy soil is first for any crop. Where are you located

Not that I know anything, but I understood from a hydroponics grower in Herefordshire that it was important to mist the plants at flower set.
