"Happy sap"--perfectly normal on a healthy plant. You can rinse with water if it bothers you; the plant won't care one way or the other.

Yeah, not to worry. The majority of my phals have it, and I'm always pleased to see it.☺

Some of my orchids had happy sap or honeydew on the spikes near the flowers. I didn't remove them because there's a risk of damaging the blooms.

When the orchids I grow outside produce it on their spikes, the hummingbirds methodically drink it all off :-)

"Happy sap" on spikes, yes. Leaf mid-ribs, yes. Distributed around the leaf like that????
