I have a Boston fern indoor plant that is recently bleeding sticky stuff out its leaves. It is only on one side of the plant and it leaves a clear sticky substance on the floor under that side of the plant! Help!

The plant has pests. There are several it could be, such as aphids, mealybug or scale. All give off a substance called honeydew that will be cleat, sticky and drippy. Treat the plant with a pesticide and this problem should clear up.
