    Sit back and wait for it to die.

    If the plant is kinda tall you can cut off all the black plus about 2 additional leaves, but you'd have to have a pretty old talangensis to be able to do that.

    Um, you do know that talangensis is a highland plant right?
    100 degrees is way to hot.
    In my limited experience, when the growing point turns black the plant dies.

    I would cut back the black parts, keep it in lower temperature range and provide good air circulation. My N. talangensis does not like high temperatures at all. You can use ice to help keep the temps lower than room temperature. I have an N. argentii doing the same thing, but the newest leaf is green.

    Don't give up just yet.
