I wiped down his leaves but before I did I snapped this picture. The whit stuff came off but the pink stuff you can still faintly see and it's on at least 3 leaves. Anybody know what it is? #flf #livingwithplants #Newplant

It looks like it could be hard water stains to me. I also considered powdery mildew, but that wipes off easily. Hard water deposits can stain, and unlike powdery mildew, can sometimes take a bit more scrubbing to remove.
@lazyplantparent so they like filtered water and not tap water?
@planthoe40 no not necessarily β€” hard water buildup occurs when water splashes onto the leaves
