The powdery residue is from a fungal issue called powdery mildew. You can try treating the plant and soil with neem oil. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/get-the-cure-for-powdery-mildew.htm

Also take a look at a product called Green Cure. I have found it to be the best in getting rid of Powdery Mildew. Link: http://www.greencure.net .
