Brand New Airplant.... What happened!? HELP!
This is my first post to the bromeliad forum.
I purchased this Tillandsia Air Plant Brachycaulos from etsy last week. I have another airplant (blushing bride) that I've had for 2 months now with no problems, so I was really shocked to see my new airplant have such a downward slump.
The bracycaulous was in a box for 4 days during shipping. It looked pretty dried out. I gave it a "bath" for 10 minutes on its arrival as explained in the instructions from my seller. I also peeled off several unsightly leaves (again following instructions provided by the seller). I gave it a quick rinse on Monday. Both times I watered the airplant I made sure it was completely dry before returning it to its container.
Here is how it looked on Thursday.
Here is how it looked this morning (Tuesday)
What has gone wrong? Too much water? Not enough water? Is it just adjusting to the new environment?
Most importantly---how can I save it!?! It looks so bad!
