It is normal for the ocotillo to turn brown at some times of the year, so it's not necessarily a problem. The stems usually turn green and produce leaves after a rain, so watering more might cause it to green up, but excessive watering can also harm the plant. If it's flowering, it's probably healthy and doesn't need extra water. Here is more information:
