    Just out of curiosity, what kind of soil is it in? Maybe if you transplanted it into new soil it will recover. Besides that is seems weird it would just start dieing off. I have mine in a terrarium and transplanted it twice (once the pot was to small - the other was in wrong soil) now it seems to be doing fine. I hope that helps you or at least gives you another idea.

    Yeah I have a spectacular (at least by my standards) Ventricosa and it is still in the soil I bought it in, has eaten on bug in it's time at my home, has never been fertilized and is about 6 inches from two flourescent bulbs. It's conditions aren't exactly favorable but it's growing like a weed! :cool:

    Black at the growing tip is usually not a very good sign. Either the tip has gotten damaged or diseased and is dying back or the plant has an internal disease in the stem. I would cut the tip back until you don't see any more black in the stem. Then treat with a systemic fungicide.

    OK I have been called upon by Stefano for some help so here goes. Stefano, is the whole stem ALL black first off? If so you need to take a cutting. If not you need to repot it in LFS and Perlite ONLY!!! No Peat!!! And treat with Superthrive ASAP. Now you tell me what the condition is now. Thank You.
