    My green nepthea is turning black and dying. It was starting to attach to a rock it was touching. I pulled it off and it tore the side. Now it is turning black all over. It is dying. what can I do to save it.

    Mine did the same thing today. Turned solid black and when I picked it up to dip it, it’s skin fell right off. I’ve never seen one necrosis like that.
