Clear Liquid Oozing from Orchid

March 12, 2010

I have had this phaleonopsis orchid for a little over a year. It has a stalk with several swelling buds and I have been anxiously awaiting for it to bloom again.

Recently, I noticed a clear sticking fluid oozing from the upper portion of the stalk. I've wiped it away but it just comes back. I cannot see any evidence of bugs.

What can this be and is my plant in danger?

Thank you.
