Pearling?

On a few of the plants that have recently been trimmed, I see bubbles coming out of the cut end of the stem.

Is this O2? Or is something else going on here?

Yes, it is O2, but it is not considered pearling. You damaged the plant. Think of it as if the plant was crying.

lol... ya, it is common to see plants bleed O2 from cut stems of leaf damage, though not desirable. Don't worry, you should see pearling soon...
