Common make goo

It may have gone dormant.
Has it balled up into a small pine-cone resembling structure? If so it has gone dormant, and has formed a hibernacula for the winter.

Might not be getting enough light. Try moving plant closer to lights to around 4-6" of the tubes if you are using fluoresent lights and see if that helps.
