    HELP! Trichrome Photos (First Use of Microscope) - Cloudy or Glass?

    Just got my digital microscope and tried some photos. This is my 3rd grow and usually I use the pistil method and wanted to try this. The first two are of a Nebula plant with pistils maybe 30% amber. The 2nd two are of a Jack Mist with pistils that are barely starting to turn amber (seems right, it should be two to three weeks behind the other). I am having a hard time distinguishing cloudy from glassy, and what is a reflection of the LED lights.

    If I had to guess, the Nebula (first two photos), seem almost 60-70% cloudy. The Jack Mist, seems maybe 10-20% by comparison. Any trained eyes out there care to weigh in? I am looking to harvest early for a head buzz.

      I understand that part, I am just trying to figure out if I what I think I am seeing is correct. Never looked at them this close before!

      I see some cloudy and some 1/2 cloudy. Give a week or 2 and they will all be cloudy.

    The wait to get to this point was frothed with days of looking, pruning, smelling, feeding and every other action you took to get here. The last 2 weeks are the worst...are’nt they? Worth the agony so hang in there
