it might be rot. what i do when my bulbs start to rot is clean out
the spot down to the good plant tissue as best as possible, then put the
rotted sop in the sun until it dries out. if you dont want to put it in
teh sun, you dont need to, that can cause problems its self. what you do
need to do is put the spot in some sort of light so it can dry out a
bit. i have never lost a bulb this way, including my A. titanum when it
rotted a little.
