What is this?

I bought these live plants at petsmart but they didn't have them under the right tag. There is some little clear thing with white dots in it on top of one of the leaves. I'm guessing maybe an egg sac of some sort? Anyone know what it is and what kind of plants these are?

Those are pond snail eggs. As for the type of plant, I'm not sure.

Will I be able to get them out? Hopefully they haven't hatched by the time I get off work

Yeah, just pull the plant out and you can rub them off.

Yes, definitely snail eggs. The plant looks like wisteria, but the emersed form. Since it's the emersed forum, it's kinda odd that you found snail eggs. Were these plants in a tank, underwater, when you bought them, or in the plastic tubes? By the way, your wisteria plant's leaves will look very different when they start to grow in their submerged form. Google for photos of "water wisteria".

The two tall ones that y'all are saying is Wisteria were in a tank when I bough them. Is it better to by the ones in a tube?

I bought the ones in a tube, then found out I don't have enough light for real plants, they're still alive, but I have to keep the light on for like 12 hours a day.

For sure it's pond snails eggs, I had that before. If you don't want pond snails, then it's probably too late, you'll need assasin snails to get rid of it.
