    Trichome Experts lake a took

    Are these pics good enough to determine what stage they are in? Some of the popcorn plants that seemed ready are now regrowing buds bigger.

      I recommend you to use 60x-100x magnifier if you have one

              7vicsmcc It ain't the easiest business to look at triches unless you have really expensive equipment, which I think most of us don't. I use a 120x handheld plastic microscope, I take off my glasses, I get it to the right focus, and then I just look closley at various bud sites--not the leaves, but the buds. It's always going to move around at such a high magnification, but I get to see the triches up close. I can definitely see if they are swelling, cloudy or clear.

              Here are my two microscopes:

              That one's for looking on the plant.

              This one plugs into my computer, and I use this when I snip a piece off the growing plant. I can just lay the piece down and really fine tune the magnification, look at different parts of the bud, etc.

                      It's such a pain in the butt for me to look at triches; I would probably need some really expensive camera equipment to be able to do it better. Using the little hand held microscopes is always so frustrating to me, BUT I can catch glimpses on the plant itself. That's why I like the one that connects to my computer, cuz I can snip a sample and put it down, and it holds still; all I have to do is focus the scope.

                      The buds will be lighter green and round, and covered with triches. You will get to see the difference between them and the leaves the more you look. Your cell lens should work great for that.

                      i'm sorry i didn't read everything, i wanted to see these pictures ^^. If all of your buds look that way i think i would harvest them.
                      If you have more plants you could harvest them in different stages. If the trichomes are getting to much amber it crates a heavy "couch lock body high". I read it somewhere so don't take my words for granted. I'm going to try to harvest my plants in different stages to tel what i liked more. good luck!

                    You have a couple if weeks left until they're cloudy. Mine are much clearer than yours. You need to get a high res cam to
                    post those kinds at f shots though.
