    How do you know if they died from overwatering? My Santa Cruz buckwheat plant just completely dried up. Is that from overwatering? I water every other day for 10 min. The plant is in sun half the day.

      That does seem too often too me. Natives can get fungus diseases from watering too much in the hot weather. And with it in the sun half the day, natives wouldn’t need that much. Might want to check with Las Pilitas or Tree of Life Nursery to get their view. We watered ours once weekly (deeply) the first year, now 3 years later we’re down to once a month or twice monthly.
