Can anyone help me identify these white spots on my dear baby #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #PetsAndPlants

Rust disease appears as rust colored, liquid filled blisters on the underside of the bromeliad’s leaves. The blisters will make their way through the leaves eventually showing as a white or for light yellow spot when viewed from the topside.

Mixing baking soda with water, about 4 teaspoons or 1 heaping tablespoon (20 mL) to 1 gallon (4 L.) of water (Note: many resources recommend using potassium bicarbonate as a substitute for baking soda.). Dishwashing soap, without degreaser or bleach, is a popular ingredient for homemade plant fungicide.
