What Is This White Stuff on My Money Plant?

victorchoo added on January 29, 2016 | Answered

The plant used to be excellent shape and one day upon reading that used coffee powder is a good natural fertilizer, I put in some. That used coffee powder started to grow fungus and my problems started since. The Money plant started to not do well and I started having this white stuff on the plant. Sections of the plant started dying while other sections sprouted and grew. I have been clearing dead leaves and some sections of the stem dies, while the other sections along the same stem is alive and growing new leaves. It's all so confusing.
