Answer: Based on your description it sounds like the plant is suffering from powdery mildew. You might wish to contact your county extension (566-0673) to verify that and see if they can suggest an appropriate control suited to indoor use. In the meantime, increase the air circulation around the plant and avoid wetting the leaves when you water. Also continue to remove and destroy any infected leaves to try to reduce the reinfection rate.
