I have a Cordon Bleu that looks healthy enough and is green with nice flowers. However, the leaves are covered with this sticky looking stuff and I have no idea what it is. Help!

The sticky stuff is probably honeydew which is a liquid that's excreted by sucking insects. Insecticidal soap will take care of the insect pests. Once you've controlled them, the honeydew should disappear.
