Hello Everyone,

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

Thanks,
Seith

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
