My Sarracenia Plava is all sticky like glue.

Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom Gb

It is in the conservatry,it's near the window it's well watered.

On plant Sarracenia



I know nothing about this plant particularly, except that you need to keep it pretty wet during the warmer months, and much drier during winter. The only thing I know that makes plants sticky is aphid infestation - their honeydew causes the stickiness. Inspect the plant, see if its got anything on it, but I thought this was a plant that ate things like that, so I'm not sure what else it could be. If the plant is otherwise quite healthy, it might be that this is normal for these plants, I don't know. Hopefully someone else who grows it will see your question;-)
