This sounds like it could be an infection starting. Over watering is usually the cause. These should be watered only after the top of the soil is dry. They like to be fertilized occasionally, as well.

The next time you water, you can use peroxide at 1 part peroxide to 3 parts water. This can help clear up the infection. The old growth will not recover, but the new growth should come out looking normal.
