I have 8 verious Chinese Capsicum potted and set in an area whith good morning sun and shaded from roughly 3:30 pm . I water 2 x daily erly morning and evenings and on weekend being i'm home mid day if hot out i add more water to the soil taking care not to wet the foilage .
On Friday it was 97f / 36c , i returned home from work only to find my Reaper Bell ( my own hybrid ) Was in rough shape. the pot that was quite moist now bone dry and my poor plant near dead . This is the only one of my seeds that germinated , and first generation so as you can imagine i'm quite desperate to save this plant . Any suggestions will be greatly Appriceated.

Pictures of the size of the pots would be a big help. Wilting in the hot afternoons is normal. Wilted in the AM and they need watering. Send pics, if not too far gone. Will probably help greatly

This morning i have some ne growth so i removed what fruit had started so the plant can focus on growing . An unfortunate sacrifice, but it gives me a better chance of saving the plant.
Consider the use of a loose tinfoil cap to shade the pot. Get stick thermometers and monitor the pot temp to be sure. You are operating in temps used for cooking and dehydrating.
