This is a fungal infection. You must take extra care not to let ANY extra water sit in those saucers. This is likely the cause.

From here, treatment may or may not work, given the age of the young plant.

You will need to apply a solution of 1/4 peroxide and 3/4 water. Make sure to drain off all extra water and wait until the soil is almost completely dry to water again with one more round of solution.

I would recommend potting up into a slightly larger container at this time. Also, use potting mix and not anything with clay in it. This will help prevent infections.

They can be somewhat finicky. You will have to provide conditions as close as possible to its native environment, even in container.
