Cuke Leaves Wilting/Drying Out
I decided to try my hand at vegetable container gardening earlier this year, but my cucumber plants leaves are drying up and wilting. I water at least once a day, usually because I go outside in the afternoon to find my plant limp and sagging. After I water it, within 30 minutes, the leaves and vines perk up, but the leaves closer to the bottom of each vine are drying up. I recently removed several dead leaves from the bottom of each vine, and now the *new* bottom leaves are drying up. I live in the Dallas area, which has recently turned into an oven with 33 days (and counting!) at 100+ degrees.
Does anyone have any idea what could be going on? Am I over watering? Could the roots be getting too hot in their pots? Is the triple digit heat just killing them?
