Pearling is minute bubbles of oxygen forming on the leaves of your plants.

Pearling is when your tank is O2 saturated. It has the maximum oxygen the water can hold at a given temperature. At this point some plants begin to release small noticible air bubbles back into the water that looks like a bead of "pearls".

If you have a healthy, well planted tank and they are getting good light, CO2, and ferts you can get pearling. I consider this pearling. Look in the middle where there is a blurr of bubble going up from one point on the leaf, but different plants pearl differently:
