I havent been having much luck with my watermelon pep so thought i'd ask for some tips. I've been growing it outdoors (being in a warm climate i can grow pretty much any tropical outdoors here year round). Its put out 2 tiny new leaves and all the others have died due to excess sun the past 2 days. Before that they were just looking a little sad and droopy but not shriveled. I'm thinking maybe its been in a more open position to what it would like so have put in in its pot into a viv which is in a shaded position outdoors in hope the higher humidity and extra shade will help. Any other suggestions?

Yeah, they don't seem to like bright light unless it's indirect bright light. You'll get bigger, better foliage with <1800 foot candles of light but not too low.
