Strawberry seedling leaves turn red

My strawberry seedlings have leaves turning red in December. I'm not sure whether this is because the leaves turn red during winter but it cannot be because the seedlings are in Singapore. Unless the seedlings have internal mechanism that tell them that now is winter. In Singapore, it is always 24 degrees C to 34 degrees C but in December, the temperatures are slightly lower. It is about 24 degrees C to 31 degrees C.

The seedlings are not dying but just the leaves are turning red. I hope it is only a temporary thing and maybe in February next year, the leaves that emerge will be green. The strawberry seedling growth is quite slow and I wonder this is normal. It is about two months and the seedlings are almost at the same height.
