Checking for amber trichomes
    #621667 - 05/06/12 08:27 PM (4 years, 9 months ago)

Hi everyone,
I have a Critical Jack Auto plant in bud, which should be finishing.
But everytime I check it, all I can see are white trichomes, no ambers.
Every now and then I think I spot some, but I later realised it was because there were red hairs behind them, lol

I am using a 20x Jewellers loupe. How obvious should it be?
Is it clear as day and night?
Or do you need to look really closely?

Cheers
MagickzX

You have to pay attention.  Look closely, take sample from different areas of your plant.  It can take a while to ripen man.

Thanks
Unfortunately, its not that clear with my 20x loupe, and my 60x-100x pocket microscope is hard to see with, as its not a flat surface.
Gonna buy a new loupe today. What magnification is better. Also, I cant successfully navigate the microscope since the image is back to frount and upside down lols
40x loupe will do?
I think its done, so I started flushing, but wanna get another loupe for my next batch.

I use a small 30X handheld scope with a built in light for this/ works great.

I use a 60-100 handheld that has a light.  I just cut off a little piece of sugar leaf from different areas of the plant and put it on a flat surface.  Works great for me.
