    I'd say depends on how long it's been in your care. If it's only just come in, it's probably low humidity and bag the plant. if you've had it a while (and I'd suggest this for a new one too), carefully move back the soil and check the roots. My plants have done this due to root rot before many times. if this is the case, find the rot zone and get rid of it, then sterilize as best as you can and apply a rooting hormone, then also bag the plant.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    yes you should check the roots
    it also could be lack of moisture

    It looks like it needs water, but I can't tell whether your media is wet or dry under that layer of 'black' stuff. It might be damaged roots which lead to the plant not absorbing water too.

    Ok, here's an update, I think I helped it recover pretty well.


    The pot is in a water tray, that's actually protecting it from about 1-2 centimeters of water that's in the aquariuam (it's a 5 gallon) to keep the humidity up...

    That looks much better!
    Of course it doesn't need that much humidity forever, now you can start slowly acclimating it to a lower humidity level.
