It's white and powdery.

What is it?

Almost looks like powdery mildew, but I didn't think that it would grow on fleshy plants. In any case, spraying the affected plants with a mixture of 9 cups water to 1 cup milk should take care of your problem.

That's not powdery mildew (which tends to be greyish and without texture). That looks like mealybugs.
