White dots on my gollum jade?

I just got this jade today, and noticed some white dots on them. Is anything wrong with it, or is there nothing to worry about? #HappyPlants #PlantAddict #PestControl

Sometimes the nursery treats the plant with insecticides that can stick to the leaves. That’s my guess based on the photo. I’d just wipe it down and see if it comes back. If it does, it’s possible it is pests? Hard to tell from the photo, but I wouldn’t worry just yet! I spray everything new with an insecticide before I bring it near my other plants, it shouldn’t hurt to treat it just to be on the safe side.
I have the same thing on mine and have been trying to figure it out! I’m still not 100% certain, but I’ve seen here and there people say it’s excess salt pushing out of the plant from the water?
