Checking trichomes

Any recommendations on a good jewelry loupe? Are the ones that attach to your phone worth it?

I just received a microscope yesterday to attach to my android phone and it works great for 15 bucks on eBay.

I use this and it works pretty well


I have the same and I love it

Here’s the one I use. It was $15 and works great and the light helps me look at the buds, even with the grow lights on.

I have that Xenvo lens as well but I don’t know what I’m doing with it, are you zooming in using the phone camera or just holding it real close to the bud?

Zooming my phone in and getting close. Make sure to take off the wide angle lens. I thought the thing sucked at first because I didn’t realize it had a wide angle lens on it, lol

Thanks! Yes, mine looks like the top pic, first thing I’m gonna do when I get home is to pull that wide angle lens off and try some macro shots.


This is what I got from Amazon after trying all the others. Works very well, but does take a steady hand.
