White plant fungus?

I'm new to keeping house plants. Recently, I've had some plants develop a white fungus. (I think.)
My solution has been to isolate those plants on my balcony ‘til they fade away. Any hints, articles, or solutions related to this problem would be appreciated. The problem begins as isolated white dots that can be wiped away.
