    Could be thrips
     
  3. yes, it does kinda look like the start of spider mites, it's hard to tell exactly. They like warmth and will be at the top of the plant when lights are on.

    do you have a scope? or magnifying glass? turn the leaf over and watch for any movement.

    Also it is possible to see with the naked eye, when the lights are on you can see them crawling around at the top of the plant, especially if there are lots of them
     
  4. Look like trichomes get mag glass to confirm
