<p>It sounds like your plant may have been affected by a combination of blackfly infestation and fungal disease. The blackfly would have weakened the plant and made it more susceptible to disease, which could have caused the blackening and shriveling of the leaves.</p>
<p>Using a mixture of washing up liquid and blackfly killer can be effective in getting rid of the pests, but it's important to be careful not to damage the plant in the process. You may also want to consider using a fungicide to treat any underlying fungal infection.</p>
