The guttation is the process of removing the water in the form of liquid droplets to the surface of the plant through hydathodes. The low light and high humidity are factors that contribute to guttation.
The guttation is quite common for many plants of tropical rainforests and it can be seen on the tips of the leaves of young sprouts. It is often confused with dew, which is an atmospheric phenomenon and has nothing to do with guttation. In this post, we gathered a small selection of pictures that present the most striking examples of guttation of tropical plants.
