Basil Leaves falling off

Hi. My healthy looking basil plant just shed more than a third of it's leaves from me touching it. I give it nutrients and water regularly and indoor full spectrum. No visible browning, wilting etc. Anyone know why?

    Too cold at night?

    Is this on mature plants or seedlings?

    Thanks for your response. It's a mature plant. Almost 2 feet tall.

    Does it sit on a windowsill at night?

    Hmm not really. It drinks up all the water in 12 hours. Thanks

    Has it flowered?
    Once they produce flowers they will start to die.
    They are annual plants

    If not, a photo may help us provide a better diagnosis

    Thank you. My hubby said it flowered but I didn't see it flower. I did trim the roots because I noticed they were a light brown. Here is a picture of it now. It has been only about 6-7 months growing from seed.
