    May be too hot with the wall preventing air movement and reflecting the sun.
    According to Wikipedia "optimum growing conditions in mean temperatures of 20 to 30 °C (68 to 86 °F); temperatures of below 20 °C and over 40 °C (68 °F, 104 °F) stunt growth significantly" Soybean - Wikipedia

    If too hot, may be shading with, for example, shade cloth could help. You can also put some organic mulch over the soil to protect it.

    Thank you so much for the advise. It is summer here in lovely South Africa and temperatures range between 30 and 42 degrees Celsius everyday for like a month now so it makes sense. I gave them some liquid fertiliser yesterday.. Hope it helps a bit!
