I have already answered this on the original, but I need to stress that you won't get a good identification of the problem when taken under purple LED.

Now the information that you have provided- It is is hydroponic set up. That helps me some. You likely have a nutrient deficiency, or a pH imbalance. The pH and EC should be tested and adjusted daily. If this is not adjusted and checked daily, there will ALWAYS be a set of symptoms to alert you that something is off.

Once you can be sure that the environment stays as stable as possible, then you can begin to diagnose other issues. Without knowing information, such as pH and EC, and if it stays in that range or fluctuates I can only assume that one of these two factors is off.
