Okra Plants

Okra in Oklahoma

Anonymous added on July 5, 2015 | Answered

I was wondering why my okra plants are wilting even though I watered them the day before. It seems to happen when the sun hits the plants because the plants in the shade do not wilt. Any ideas why this happens and what I can do about it?

This is simply due to heat stress and other than keeping the soil moist or adding a translucent shade cloth for extra afternoon shade, there's little that can be done. Normally, this will not hurt the plant as long as you are keeping it well watered.
