Do plants sweat?

http://grist.org/list/plants-sweat-and-its-beautiful/

“Guttation happens when plants take in excess water from the soil, but don’t evaporate it through their stomata (or pores) because those close up at night. (Technically this evaporation, called transpiration, is more analogous to how people sweat — but it’s not as photogenic.)”
