bubbles from plants
 
Hi, I have streams of tiny bubbles coming off of my plants througout the day. I just wanted to ask if that was normal.

Yes, aquatic plants go through the same process as regular plants, they put off oxygen which cuases the bubbles.

I have always heard it being called "pearling" my plants did it when I had my DIY CO2 system set up. It was quite exciting!

With a dIY system, it is even more prone to happen...
The carbon being emitted offers growth to your plants right? And unlike humans, flora emits oxygen, and consumes CO2, so those tiny little "pearls" are little bubbles of oxygen, still clinging to your plants.
Hope that helps :)
