Why are the bromeliads on all sides of my house starting to discolor ? Had these for many years. Thanks.

Hi & welcome!

Couldn't begin to guess without more info about where these plants are located and what the weather has been like.

I agree Please fill in your location (I'm guessing Arizona by your handle?) with city/state so we can know more about your climatic conditions. A sudden cold snap, or a lot of rain during cold weather might have caused this. Can you tell us more about the area the plants are growing in? eg. north side of a house, or near a wall, under a tree etc.

If you could possibly post a picture of the area, a little further away from the plants, that would be helpful too. Has there been a change in the light/shade near the plants recently? Tree branches trimmed or a tree or shrub removed nearby? Some broms tolerate sun and some don't, especially in hot, dry areas.

My eyes aren't the greatest and it looks like a glare on the plants but I do see what appears to be a blotchy discoloration. My first thought was maybe cold damage and then I got to wondering if perhaps it might be chemical damage; possibly a landscaper sprayed a neighbors yard and the over spray hit your plants.
