Trichomes will be all over your buds and on the leaves intertwined with the buds. They are quite small, little stalks with balls atop them. It is the color of these little balls that is important when you are nearing harvest time. Here are some closeup pics of trichomes on some plants at 50 days of flowering. They're mostly clear, which means not harvest time yet. Pics were taken with a 30x jewelers' loupe held in front of the lens of a consumer digital camera (Canon A620) set on macro.
