I suggest that you unpot the plant. It looks like the media is stale, (not enough air) and your roots are probably bad. The white spots look like bugs to me. Mealy bugs (soft scale) goes through 3 instars before it becomes an adult. You will need a magnifying lens to see them in all their glory. There are new growths coming so you can probably save the plant with re-potting and an insecticide.

Does anyone have any idea whats going on with my thecopus maingayi?
Looks like medium is going acid and the plant either isn’t getting and/or can’t uptake CalMag. I’d repot immediately and soak off the bat in an epsom salt solution and/or start CalMagging the crap out of it.
