White leaves can indicate a need for fertilizer or the beginnings of a disease called powdery mildew, or might even indicate spidermite damage. If the leaves have no chlorophyll at all, they may simply be aging or are showing a need for fertilzer. If the white is a coating on the surface of the leaves, it's powdery mildew. If the leaves are stippled white and green, spidermite feeding is the probable cause. I'd simply cut off the affected leaves. The rest of your plant should remain healthy.
