I found this article which may be of some use to you and your mearly bugs,:This not fungus. It is mealy bugs and their eggs. Spray or wash with soapy water and/or rubbing alcohol. Two or three treatments a week apart should take care of the problem. When mealy bugs get into tillandsia foliage they are very hard to see. You might want to examine all the plants to make sure they have not been affected.

Hi Patricia, how are your new darlings doing at your place, my 2 $8.50 fellow, one bloom already.
This one going to, last week some leave turn a bit more red, but his week become green again
This one live with my very old one on this driftwood
My old reborn again and again on this wood, the two bbs that drop off go to the other wood as they need a hole to hold them there.
Those special offer one live in the office, today just give them a good bath in my orchid growing fertilizer after the advice from moods, thanks moods, will see how they can improve.

My new darlings still show no sign of blooming. :(/> :ranting2:/> Maybe all of them are 'hibernating'. :hysterical:/> Well, I'll learn to be more patience nowadays after growing tillandsias. ha...........
Joke apart, abby i have to go back home to access the pictures that you have posted. My office blocks certain picture files especially photobucket, so I can only see box with a cross.

Just buy one of those $1 pump bottle, pour the oil into the it and bring to office, from there you add water (oil must be well sufficient). Office mealybug multiplies very fast bec there is no other area to go to and it is cool (presumed aircon) from my observation. Oil works very well in office as it remains for 1 week+
Remember to spray the unopened leaves and stem roots, that where the babies are hiding.
