This is my first time growing a pineapple in Sydney, Australia. Does anyone know what these yellow marks are? They have begun appearing and correlate to the pictures of the underside of the leaves I have posted as well. It seems to be some sort of structural breakdown on the underside of the leaves?

I am worried it is something bad happening.
Any help?

Is this plant in full sun? It kind of looks like mine when they get sunburned. For whatever reason despite being tropical plants I have to keep mine partially shaded or water them incessantly if theyre in full sun.

Forgot to mention, itll be fine. Lol. Pineapple plants are like weeds I swear, I bring mine in for winter and rarely water them and they've all set fruit. Very easy plants that self propagate.

I dont think its something that you should be worried about. However here are some common issues:
The most common pests of this plant are mealybugs. They are small, soft-bodied insects that you can sometimes find on the leaves, stems, or fruit. They are sap suckers and often act as disease spreaders. You can treat them with pesticides but read the label carefully to ensure that they are safe for these plants. Other pests include scales, thrips, mites, and symphylids.
Here is some more details.
