The most commonly encountered white bugs on indoor plants are mealybugs and scale insects. These attach themselves to stems and the undersides of leaves and can be difficult to control. You can try dabbing each of them with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. This will kill the pests and you can then pry them off your plants. Good luck with your houseplants!
