lemon tree indoors

Anonymous added on December 6, 2014 | Answered

I brought my lemon tree indoors for the winter. It had lots of flowers and it looks as though some of them have been fertilized. Where the base of the drying flower connects to the tiny lemons there is a sticky substance. Normal or bugs?

Interestingly enough, I'm not sure. I'll have to go out and check some fruiting plants. Until I get a chance to do that, check carefully for aphids or scale - those are usually the source of stickiness.
