Can anyone tell me what's wrong with my plants. The leaves are covered with a thin white film, could be fungal. Any idea what it might be and how to treat it?

Why don't you give it a cropping, then feed it, should get new leaves, this plant is hard to kill.

Thanks for the quick response. Just had a look at plant care for this plant - why didn't I think of that first? :-) It sounds like it's powdery mildew and sounds like the roots are too dry. I'll try your advice first before going for the chemicals! Thanks.
