    Your plants are probably not getting the correct cues to start fruiting.
Check, for instance, what is the temperature needed compared to what temprature 
they are in right now: most of the time the plants need to be 'cooled down' 
before they will start a fruiting cycle.  Also the amount of light, natural or 
grow light needs to be adjusted to fit a fruiting cycle.
