I live in southern arizona. Answers here say that overwatering is the cause. It says to let them dry out. I wasted every other day. If I don’t I get leaf wilt. I am getting leaf curl. The temps here are 100⁰to 110⁰ on anyday. What should I do.

They will definitely wilt in the heat. Water will not be the answer, though, unless the soil is completely dry down to about 3 or 4 inches.

Shade cloth during the heat of the day will be the best defense against wilting.

With proper shade and watering habits they will stay healthy.
