Why do we find dew drops on leaves in the early morning?

The dew drops that we see on the leaves in the early morning is due to guttation. Guttation is loss of water in liquid form from the plants. It occurs when there is active absorption of water by roots and transpiration is low i.e. moist and humid conditions. These drops are the dew drops.

Why is there dew some mornings and not others?

Dew is liquid water droplets that form on grass, spider webs, and other things in the early morning or late evening. Dew only forms under certain conditions.
