Sticky leaves are almost always a sign of infestation by one of 2 or 3 kinds of bugs - aphids, scale, or mealybugs. If you look closely at your plants, you should be able to see the culprits sticking to the undersides of leaves and/or stems. There are several approaches to treatment, but the least invasive is spraying with a soap or soap and neem oil mixture. Be sure to spray weekly for 4 weeks.
