Not sure, but it may be a fungal infection.

I would wipe with a fungicide like neem do a spray early in the AM. It may just be from a lot of sun too. If you use neem reduce the sunlight so it doesn't burn until it dries!

Neem oil is what lovephals is refering to you can get it at most stores or nursery's (stores that have a garden center), or on line.

Well, not necessarily in Serbia. Neem oil is under horticultural oil category and is used as a natural desinfectant (even when they don't state this on the label.) Medical alcohol applied locally to each spot with a Qtip or a cotton ball might help as well.

Good luck!

The little white stuff => mealies, no ?

I'd say either it's sun light, or it's places where mealies have been and sucking, eventually something may be at work. I'd clean all this with alcohol and treat with a systemic fungicide.

Do you know the registered name of your Phal? The marks on your leaves don't look like they were caused by fungus or pests to me but there is probably a pattern leaf Phal in the background.
