Pearling strawberry?

greystoke(South Africa(11))March 23, 2008

I've actually never seen water drops so neatly arranged along the edge of a strawberry leaf.

It's not dew. Only a few plants do this.

Does anyone know what causes this?

No idea, but that's cool!

These drops hang there for about an hour after sunrise. Then they evaporate. It's very pretty.

I suppose that the plant overindulges in water during the night (system works 24/7), and then - when the days heat starts - it needs to get rid of excess water.

Anyone with a better guess?
