    Initially I thought I had a few water spots on a leaf or two, but it spread to all my plants like wildfire. Any suggestions on how to cure them?

    It's difficult to see, but there appear to be scales in the first photo? I'm not sure where you are located, but you can try some insecticide (maybe something with imidacloprid?).

    I second the diagnosis of scale.
