Spider Mites

//Spider Mites

The most likely cause of damage that looks like this on many plants is spider mites. They are sucking insects and cause this white mottled stippling on foliage when a plant is typically stressed. They are very hard to see, but the underside of infested foliage often looks dusty, sticky, and vaguely web-like and dirty.

Do not use an insecticide as this would not be effective. You will need a product formulated with a miticide if it is mites.
