Fruit dropping off stems.

I have been trying to figure out for a while now why every time a flower forms and starts to fruit they just drop off the stem. I know its not too hot in the basement so it can't be heat. I have a fan moving air through the system so I don't think that is it either. I can only guess there is some type of deficiency that is causing this problem. If someone has a suggestion or possible reason it is happening in my system please post a comment. This is happening on the pepper's as well as tomatoes. I have not had a single fruit develop from either. On the other side of it though, my lettuce, and cabbage have done really well.

  1. Do you actually pollinate the flowers? Outdoors insects would take care of this but you surely do not keep pollinating insects indoors, do you?
