I started out using two magnifying glasses to check trich ripeness and welcomed arrival of the cheap 30X jeweler loupe. This year the 60-100X pocket microscope started showing up and I bought one. I'm now back to using my 30X, it does the job, and it is quick. I spent a lot of time learning how to use a stick planted on the ground against the colas for a rest to focus the microscope and while that's probably fun for a few plants, it soon turned into a time-consuming chore with my grow. The 60X power microscope (anything above that was a handful to focus) was a great view, so now I'm looking for a 60X magnifying glass that doesn't break the bank. Anybody?
