I plant jackfruit plant in my home but, due to some reason, I can’t provide water for jackfruit plant so it’s become very dry now. I want your help to grow that plant again. The plant comes from seed and it’s 6 months old.

I'm not sure. I live in La Penita, Mexico and my jackfruits have been without water since rainy season ended last September. My 4 jackfruit trees are thriving and looking healthy (although only 1 of them is bearing fruit).

Jack fruit is a plant that requires a lot of water, and if you can't provide that water, there's no alternative. Water is most basic to all plants, and plants that can't adapt to drought conditions simply won't grow where they don't get sufficient water. So, if you can't provide water, I would suggest that you look for other, more drought tolerant species, to grow.
