    Mine never do. I think it takes a perfect amount of cO2 and fertilizers, something I can never figure out. :)

    Pearling is when plants produce enough oxygen that it creates little "pearls", or air bubbles on it's leaves.

    Yeah, that's how I feel. As long as their green, they're alive and I don't care how much oxygen they create.
