Q.white stuff on my camellia

What is the white stuff all over the leaves on my camellia and how can I get rid of it? It is in a plant pot at the moment, as it is grown from cutting the main plant.

This is likely powdery mildew, which is normally attributed to fungal issues, especially in overly moist areas. The plant can be treated with neem oil, which will help alleviate the symptoms, but you should allow the soil to dry out some if it's somewhat wet too.
