Give Jatropha regular watering. Especially if the plant gets plenty of sunlight it needs a lot of water. A Jatropha is a tropical plant and also holds moisture. Drought can really have not, but wet feet can find the plant also not fine. Approximately give 3x a week water, the amount of water depends on the size of the pot, but concern remains moist at least for the soil. Just above the soil watering is fine, but the pot put a few minutes in a layer of water is also a good way to give water.
It is possible that the lower leaf turns yellow by various factors. This does not mean going Jatropha death. Just remove this yellow leaf and your Jatropha is beautiful again
