Two things some to mind. If the soil stays wet too long, you will see fungal growth. Fungus is part of soil microbiome and is in the soil naturally. If you are over-watering, it will grow quickly. Like mushrooms that pop up, fungus isn't dangerous and doesn't make the plant poisonous. Just don't eat it. White fluffy also describes two insect pests, mealybugs and some scale insects. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/mealybugs-control.htm
