It seems that one needs to be perfectly still to get a good look at trichomes. I looked in the reviews for suggestions, where a couple folks said to cut off a tiny piece of bud. Umm, I don’t want to do that. Any other tips that don’t involve mutilating my plant? LOL.
Perhaps the Microbrite isn’t for me, and maybe a different device, like maybe a simple jeweler’s loope, might be sufficient?
