Water drops or even drips from leaves or the ends of cut stems is a normal, natural process. Sometimes plants take up more water than they need and the excess moisture is expelled through natural openings in the leaves, often forming drops at the leaf tips. This moisture eventually evaporates. Water can also drip or run from the ends of cut stems and branches. It won't hurt the plant and when the wounds heal over, there will be no more drips.

Hope this information reassures you!
