Question Can anyone tell me what this is?

Can anyone identify what this is on my amazon sword plant?

looks like eggs of some sort or maybe its just part of the plant?

Thanks!

i don't know what they are, but your plant looks more like a java fern than a sword.

Those spots are completely normal for java ferns, in fact terrestrial ferns have them too.
