My orchid is dripping sticky sap. Is this normal?

Yes, this is somewhat normal. It happens mostly in warm temperatures and bright light, though not always. I'm not really sure why some plants seem to do this, but it isn't harmful. You might be able to wipe the sap off with a damp cloth, though this can be tedious and is not necessary.
