Q.The New Flowering Stem Seems To Have Liquid Coming From It.

Zone Bowden, Melrose, TD6 0SZ Scottish Borders | Anonymous added on February 7, 2021 | Answered

I feed the plant usually every two weeks while letting plain water run through the plant the weeks in between. This particular plant had 3 babies last year, which are transplanted and thriving well. New leaves are sprouting and the new stem seems to be thriving as well but does seem to be “seeping”. I mop it up to stop it dripping on the carpet. Can you help me here please.
