Tomato & cucumbers not producing

Tomato & cucumber plants have lots of healthy growth & are producing flowers.
Cukes have lots of flowers & thumbnail size cukes. One cuke reached mature size over a week ago & was picked. No more are getting any bigger.
Tomato has only one fruit showing, very tiny. Have pollinated tomato flowers by hand but no more fruit setting.
Am using purchased nutrient solution and following directions.
First stage 2.5-1-6.5
Second stage 5.5-0-1.0
Third stage 0-5.5-4.5

Tomato & cucumbers not producing
by: ckirkley

I have better results with cucumbers and tomatoes using southern agricultures hydroponic special, which is a 5-11-26 mix with minor elements added. It is mixed 8:2:5 special/epson salts/calcium nitrate. From start to fruit I cycle up from 450ppm to 1500ppm at maturity and in 14 years, I haven't had a problem with fruiting.

I would say if you have no environmental problems causing issues, then it is the nutrients you are using.

I never have to switch mixes at any point in the life of the plants, just increase the nutrient strength as the plants become larger.
