I planted 2 icebox watermelon plans about 3 weeks ago.
They were both growing well but recently 1 started going downhill.
They both get the same amount of sun and water.
Here in Boise Idaho the weather has been pretty bad the last week or soÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ rainy and cold... highs in the mid 70Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s lows in low 50Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s high 40Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s. Before that we had highs in the upper 80Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s lows in the 60Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s.

Any idea whats wrong???

Lots of parts of the US have had cool wet springs. It is perfect weather for encouraging fungus problems. At a guess, I'd say that's what happened to yours, some kind of fungal blight or wilt. If you want to try to save it you could try spraying it with a solution of milk and water (any where up to 59-50 at this point trying to save a dying plant; organic milk with active lactobacillus is best) or a baking soda and water solution.
