looking for suggestions don’t really see any bugs on it. We have had a ton of rain this year and not nearly as hot as usual.

No doubt you have sooty mold on the plant somewhere but that white stuff is either soft scale or mealy bugs. Sooty mold is basically insect excrement.

Neem oil works great! If you have mealy bugs, use systematic granules as well from bonide. First time I dealt with mealy bugs, I freaked out! Only because I bought this plant I was looking for a long time. I used neem oil and the mealy bugs were still there,, but not as much,, so I added the granules and they were done within 24 hours.
