Coffea arabica (houseplant) sap??
I noticed I over-watered one of my coffee plants and I am trying to determine if what I found under the leaves is the plants way of dissipating the excess water or what. It appears to be sap, but it's clear, and appears close to the veins on the leaves, on the undersides. It was sticky to the touch. I washed the leaves, gently, and washed my hands thoroughly as I believe it's a toxic plant. I can't find SQUAT for info on coffee plants and sap except that they produce it in the SPRING. But, I'm worried that if it isn't sap, it could be the residue of something else. Anyone familiar with this?
I'm going to be very careful in future. I didn't realize I had bought the water-retaining soil mixture - I hate that crap, and will be re-potting and getting rid of that crap.
