    Thanks for the replies. I'm glad no one said they were some killer pest that was going to wipe up my entire plant collection
    I'll have to check if the webs/mucous come back. I don't remember ever seeing this before but I may have just been ignoring it.

    I'd say its a colony of Hit Mites, they will destruy your collection starting with webs that will slowly suck the living lifes out of your plants!

    It's just the mucus from the leaves as they mature and separate from the growing crown of the plant.

    I see it happen on my pings too.

    That shows us just what a clever and ingenious design these plants are; that that the capturing mucus is so fine and so strong it can appear webbing-like and still entangle small insects for nourishment.
    Only a moral and virtuous people are capable of freedom; the more corrupt and vicious a people becomes, the more it has need of masters. -- Benjamin Franklin
