Hi, research suggests it might be mealybug but my infestation looks a bit different to photos I"ve seen online. I just can't figure this out.

If anyone could identify & advise on how to eliminate it (preferably naturally without the use of chemical pesticides) I'd very much appreciate it.

One photo shows white stuff on the leaf, the other photo shows it on the stem.

Many thanks!

What you have are soft scale insects, probably mealybugs. Spray with Neem Oil, a safe organic pesticide, once a week for 3 weeks.
