Tiny clear round objects on back of leaves

Vidor, TX

Hi everyone, I just got some plants in from accentsforhomeandgarden.com and they are infested with a few pests. This included. I have never seen them in my nursery so idk how to get rid of them or how destructive they are. They are sessile and do not move when agitated, so I do NOT think they are aphids. Please help!

These do not look like insects or insect eggs to me; they may be fluid droplets of some kind exuded by the plant. Try wiping them off with a soft cloth, cover/enclose the plant with cheesecloth or something similar to exclude insects, and see if the objects reappear.
