    Drosera spp. certainly have some sticky trichomes.

    Look into hops (humulus lupulus), has distinctive anvil shaped trichomes used for climbing, and is in the family Cannabaceaea, so likely are 'sticky' in the sense you mean.

    Drosera are often grown in greenhouses as a kind of living pest strip. I have seen them at places that sell tropical house plants. We have had them for sale here at the Shop in the Garden at times in the past.

    Another plant with sticky trichomes that comes to mind is Nicotiana. Very easy and quick to grow annual plants. Ornamental varieties may already be available at nurseries or will be coming soon.
