I know this was a long time ago now but just in case you didn't figure out the problem or it returns or maybe someone else has a similar problem. The pest here is most definitely mealybug,  they are responsible for the damage and they are the cause of all that white/purple material. Mealybug are actually in the scale family and reproduce in a similar manner, however mealybugs are able to move better due to them having legs and do more damage.

If anyone needs removal advice please let me know. They can be tricky to deal with, especially if they get into the roots.

I hope you sorted out the problem.

Some kind of scale insects, I suppose. A nasty being, quite difficult to get rid of. Some systemic insecticide might help, contact insecticides have little or no influence on them (because of the waxy shield these beasts are covered with).
Some pictures from my collection:
