Can I plant strawberries in a five gallon pot that has a pachira aquatica (money) tree?

I live in Florida zone 9b

I just transplanted my beloved pachira aquatica into a five gallon pot and I wanted to move my strawberries out of the back bed (I have some potted peppers there and have no other place to put them) Could the strawberries hurt the growth of the pachira aquatica?

This question is optional to answer: Would my pachira aquatica flower in a five gallon pot if left out in the florida sun? What kinds of fertilizers would induce it to flower?

Im not sure the strawberries would be happy for long in such a small pot. While they dont need a lot of depth, mine like to send out runners and spread more plants across the garden. In a 5 gallon pot i think they would run out of room to move and eventually stop producing.
