Looking forward to watching this thread! My planted tank is only a few weeks old and I don't have any pearling pictures to offer yet, but I look forward to it soon.

Pearling is such a beautiful symbol of the plant's happiness. It's like a thank-you to the keeper, for creating such a great environment for them in which they are happily thriving!

(Sorry to get overly spiritual about it. I just really like it!)

I had pearling with DIY CO2 (and even with no CO2,) so don't give up hope! It's a combination of available CO2, oxygen saturation of the water, and light intensity. Something as simple as extra bright lights (or in my case, a brief period of afternoon sunshine on the tank) can do the trick.
