It means that the plants are in high gear. They are producing O2 through photosynthesis so quickly that oxygen bubbles are forming in the water and floating to the surface.

Did you just do a large water change? If you poured the water in quickly, air bubbles will get trapped on the plants. That could be what you are observing. If not and you have turned the plants around that quickly, kudos!

Based on your remark that your fake plants were pearling as well in another thread, I'm guessing you're seeing the effects of a water change (happens to me all the time)... But it looks very similar.

I did a water change but I didn't pour it in I used a python on the opposite side of the tank so did that do it or are they actually pearling

My fake ones I knew were from the water change because that was the side I did my water change on but didn't know if that was also true for my live plants

yeah, same thing on both. python does it too. I'm pretty sure its from being under pressure in the pipes.
