What Is Guttation?

Sometimes plants secrete water from their pores, and these small droplets collect together in enough quantity to drip. It is not from humidity in the air, it is comes from within the plant.

When Does Guttation Happen?

Guttation happens when the plant roots have taken in a lot of water and there is some internal pressure in the plant so it forces excess water out of the pores.

It is nothing to worry about, it is a completely natural process.
