How do I know when the stigma is producing stigmatic fluid?

On irises it glistens and is only slightly sticky. On daylilies it oozes from the tip of the stigma and forms kind of a half bead of heavy viscous fluid on the tip of the stigma. On irises how do you know if you are looking at stigmatic fluid or water when it is raining? You do not know for sure. Certainly you do not always get a seed pod if you dab the pollen. On the other hand, you never get one if you don't. You can wait until the rain stops as an option.
