Are the plants new? if thats the case then its normal, but if their not new it could be a number of different things. I think that changes in light tend to affect plants and cause them to melt again. The best thing to do is probably look for new growth on the plants, that will most likely be a good indicator of the plant coming back

Don't the optics focus the light so it is more intense? Chain swords are nutrient hogs, maybe they need MORE.
