There is some sticky stuff on the orchid leaf. Its clear and forms in drops. Any Suggestions? Thanks
Plant secretion termed 'honeydew', usually a sign of good health in orchids. I've seen it on leaves on some orchids and on buds on others. I like to spray my plants with water thoroughly to remove it to prevent fungal infection.
You should also check to make sure that there are no bugs on the plant - either brown spots(scale), or white(mealy bugs), or aphids. As bugs will be drawn to the honeydew.
