This sounds like powdery mildew. This can happen is the area remains too moist for too long. I would suggest supplementing light with at least 100 watts per plant. This will help dry things up a bit.

You can also use neem oil to help you get rid of the issue. This should be used out of the bright light, so that you do not burn them.
