Scale will attack any plant, but they are more attracted to plants that are weakened. I would check the plant to see if it might be under stress from something (under-watering, lack of nutrients, etc.) and correct this while also treating the scale infestation. We recommend treating with neem oil, as it is very effective against these pests. Here is more information that may help:
