hi.... well, that does sound like a tongue twister but it is NOT!!!!!!!
I've recently planted an impatiens i rooted from a cutting, not sure which variety, and notice that there are tiny, nearly uniformly spaced little clear bubble looking things along the branches. no buds or flowers yet. i have other impatiens which don't have this. if you know what this might be, please tell me and also what to do if something needs doing.
thanks in advance

It is a sugar like fluid tha they put out some times. It doesnt hurt the plant at all, its natural. Many plants do this to release excess water. when the water dries it leaves behind the sugar.

Could be the little bumps that will develop into roots if you stick the stem in soil.
