You didn't mention whether or not you regularly feed your plants. A nutrient deficiency can cause the leaves to lose their green pigmentation. On the other hand, if you are seeing a white coating on the surface of the leaves, you're dealing with a fungal disease called powdery mildew. If so, prune off the affected plant parts or treat your plants with a copper based fungicide. Good luck with your plants!
