AND COULD SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME: IF THERE ARE MEALY BUGS ON MY LEAVES DOES THAT MEAN THAT I HAVE SOIL MEALIES TOO? AND HOW DO I PREVENT SOIL MEALIES IF NOT?

Maybe you can take a look at this website http://www.mda.state.mn.us/plants/insects/...e/mealybugs.htm
I also had some problem with the bugs and i changed the soil for the whole plant. Thank goodness it is a small pot.
I also read that mealybugs wun be a huge problem unless you have ants plaguing your plant as they will protect the mealybugs from other predators.
Neem oil dun really worked that well for me but i think it can deter some insects if you use it everyday. I think it serves better as a deterrence than as solution if you already have an insect infestation.
Hope that helps in some small ways. The experts will be able to assist you better.
Meanwhile, dun panic!
