I cant see much in the pictures. As for lighting all I see is one led light panel, and I don't see any florescent lighting at all. I was hoping to be able to see the placement of the light fixture/s in relation to the plants. If the one LED is your only light source, that's likely just not enough light for the plant to be able to do enough photosynthesis. Fruiting plants need more light than foliage plants. And both LED and florescent lighting are only effective within about 18 inches max. Any foliage farther away than 18 inches from the light source isn't getting enough light to do photosynthesis with. It's like trying to grow a plant that needs full sun, but putting it in a place that gets 70-80% shade.
