The Q&A Archives: New Plant "weeps"

Question: I just received a house plant. The tag reads the plant is a DUMB CANE (dieffenbachia hybrid). It is a good looking plant w/ verigated leaves. My question, it seems to ,for lack of a better word, weep. These are water droplets on the ends of each leaf. Why is this? I live in an apartment in New York City and have had plants in the past. Please advise. Thanks, M.Manley
