Morning...on going problem not sure how to fix. Plumeria and Areca Palms, all outdoors and planted...have white stuff on them. I think it may be a mold or powdery mildow...at times it looks like mealy bugs...I can't find any intelligent person in my are to diagnose exactly what it is and how to treat it. Possibly lack of sun (some areas are shaded), lack of air circulation...both?
Thanks in Advance,
Koale

More than likely powdery mildew on your plumeria. Very common. Here's a site for you on 'plumerias' and how to manage them:

Your best bet to get the correct answer and ways to fix it would be the cooperative extension service or Master Gardeners. There are four in Hawaii: CTAHR County Programs and here is the list of services: Agricultural Diagnostic Service Center

Until you know for sure my best guess for both Plumeria and Areca alms would be the spiraling whitefly. Here's the first picture I could find that is pretty clear:

Additional pictures are in the following link but nit as clear: Whitefly - One Property Services LLC (http://www.onepsllc.com/whitefly.html - broken link)

Hope it gets you going in the right direction.
