Can you send a photo? This will help me to see what is going on. It is important to water as the soil becomes dry, but not keep it overly wet. This can cause a fungal infection. In the meantime, adding dolomitic lime, and wettable sulfur to the soil will keep an infection from starting, or help cure one if this is the case.
