More than likely these are related issues. Spider mite damage can appear as white speckles but if it is a true white then I would consider a powdery mildew issue. Try reducing the humidity around the area, if possible. Otherwise, I have a recipe that I use to both regenerate plant soil, and to kill and protect against insects, and fungal pests. My recipe is as follows:
First, you will want to prime the soil with dolomitic lime, then spread wettable sulfur to Kill off any infection in the soil. I Also like to spray the plant itself. Mix a few drops of one or more of these ingredients into warm water with a spoonful of coconut oil: Rosemary oil, lavender oil, neem oil, garlic oil, cinnamon extract/oil and for really bad cases, also add clove oil.
