Hello,

I purchased my Tillandsia Xerographica about two months ago. I did not realise that it had brown powdery splotches on some bottom layer leaves. Since then, I have trimmed those leaves. However, they seem to keep coming back, and there are bald patches on the leaves where it should be covered in the white trichomes. The top of the plant seems to be healthy.

I soak my plant once a week for 45 mins, and give it light mistings throughout the week. I also dump the water out thoroughly so I don't think it is wet rot.

Is my airplant diseased? Any remedy is appreciated.

The trichomes appear to have been rubbed off. Doesn't look worrisome tho.
