Trichomes during drying
I have a question. I snipped off one of the smallest buds on my small autoflower plant (outdoor grow) as I thought it looked a little waterlogged after a recent water spray. As an experiment I put the bud in a brown paper bag in a dark place for a couple of days. The bud already looks pretty dry. When I look at the trichomes now under my loupe it seems they have gone to a slightly muddy shade of off-white/cream/brown. Is that normally what happens? See picture attached...
Any advice appreciated as this is my first grow
Looks good to me mate, but to see the trichomes you need to get closer, like 60- 100 x zoom

@macky - Thanks mate. I used a jewellers loupe and for the photo above I put it in front of my mobile phone camera... if you zoom in you might just start to see the trichomes. I should probably just buy a USB Microscope... but not sure they work with iPhones?
this is your best option and its cheap as chips i have one its so so handy
