The white powder you mention sounds like powdery mildew. However, the sticky stuff that you speak of sounds more like a pest of some kind, mealy bugs, aphids, spider mites or similar sap-sucking insect.

All of these can be taken care of with neem oil. Here is more info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
