Well, that explains the powder - what about the whitening on the veins of the leaf? And could you tell me what you mean by the "paper root" and "distortion paper?" I don't understand what you're seeing. If you can tell me where you're located, I can probably help you locate the gardening assistance in your area.

The most likely problem is powdery mildew, although zucchini do often get natural white blotching on the leaves around the vein; these are a genetic trait, and it's thought they might be useful in repelling aphids. Rub the leaves with you fingers - fi the white stuff rubs off, it's probably powdery mildew. If it doesn't rub off, it's probably the natural silvering. Leaf distortion could be caused by powdery mildew, or by some cultural shortcomings.
