Q.Why is my plant turning black from the inside

The center of the plant has turned black as well as the tips. Not sure what type of plant it is. I think in the cane family?

That looks like a type of dracaena plant. It may have root rot from overwatering. Wait till the top of the soil is dry before watering again. You can also try a moisture meter, which can help to decide if a plant needs water.

Remove all soil from the plant and repot in fresh potting mix.
