    It ( the silver is actually the web) of a pest called false spider mite, or red spider ( it is not a spider, it is a mite, but hey, this is a botanical group, not an entomological one ). Frankly I would put that plant in a plastic bag, and then in the trash. So sorry to say you will never resuscitate it ; unless you too can walk on water....
