Followed instructions and the plant in big pot in full sun. Watered thoroughly before going on 4 day vacation. Upon return, plant leaves are dry. Live in Los Angeles, weather hot 80-90 degrees. Help!

Yes, plants in containers outdoors can dry out quickly in the heat. Try watering it again, but moderately in case it has trouble absorbing water. Don't soak it until it shows that it's healthy again. You can also move it to the shade while it recovers. Hopefully your plant will revive.
