These are plants that store water in the trunk. With this being said, they are very sensitive to disease from overwatering.

A fungicide will be in order, but you will need to correct watering habits, as well.

Make sure that the soil dries, very thoroughly, down to about 3 or 4 inches between watering. Even more is fine, too. Underwatering is much better than overwatering in this case.
