Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I suspect an infection starting from roots remaining just a little too wet, though. These plants require very well draining soil. I recommend one with plenty of bark and larger particulate, but potting soil with peat moss added will be fine. They can handle drying out some between waterings, too. At least let the top 2 or 3 inches dry out, completely, but make sure that it never remains soggy in the center of the soil.

Here are some articles that will help:
