    Large dust particles like salt is white spot....smaller dust particles which looks like flour is Oodinium or Velvet...apologies for the non scientific explanation here guys...
    If you have white spot you have some time to act and more success to cure.....if you have Oodinium you have MUCH less time on your hands and success rates are low.. for treatment options for either ask here...but it revolves around options of Copper, hypo and transfer method...good luck
