Can you include a photo? This is usually indicative of a fungal infection. Make sure to only water when the soil is almost completely dry. These are drought tolerant, and will not tolerate being wet for too long. You can replace 1/4 of the water with peroxide the next time you water. This one time dose will kill off any infections in the soil.
