Is my Chinese evergreen plant here in my office ok? I noticed some water droplet type secretions on the new leaves and on the undersides of some other leaves. Is this normal? An officemate said it could be from a bug. It's hug and my favorite plant, please help!
This is called guttation or 'the secretion of droplets of water from the pores of plants'.
It is not unusual and is not a sign of insects. The liquid can be sticky and this is not a problem.
The plant's circulation system is drawing water from the soil up to the leaves and there is so much pressure it doesn't stop when it gets to leaves: a little bit leaks out.
This is more common when the plant is in high light.
