Hello Everyone,

I have clear sticky drops all over my Nepenthes like in this picture I found on What is it and how do I get rid of it if it is a pest?

Yoh mean the sap? The plant uses that as bait for insects, when the insect drinks the sap, its drugged and falls into the pitcher, its perfectly normal dont worry :)

Thanks Sp0nser and sanguinearocks101! Since it was all over the plant I was really starting to worry. I had been searching for pests but could never find any. Man do I feel relieved it’s just sap and not something sinister! Thanks again :D
