Aeroponic Ficus - Leaves turning brown and falling off


I just recently got a year old Ficus Nerifolia and decided to test out aeroponic system with it. Its been two weeks since I first set up the ficus two weeks ago, but now it seems that some of its leaves are turning a somewhat brown color and falling off. Though this is not the case with the majority.
Could these leaf condition be a signs of the initial re-potting shock? Or could this be a watering problem?
My schedule for watering is twice a day for 30 minutes. Its is also near a southern facing window.

What are you giving it for nutrients?
Sounds like a lack of nutrients to me. Could be wrong tho.
