On my balcony facing north, I have a frangipani in a large pot doing extremely well but suffered in yesterday's heat. It had been well watered in the morning but the leaves had bent down by late afternoon yesterday. It faces nth west so the sun was on the plant quite a while from the west. I plan to put umbrella over this later today. My question is it O.K. to spray the leaves with water to help cool the plant or is that detrimental? thank you

It would not be recommended to spray the leaves down.
