    anywhere from 10-30x works good. 10x is great. look at radio shack of on ebay for a jewelers loupe.

    Those Radio Shack plastic microscopes are great for checking out detail in a closed environment and on a flat surface but for getting closeups of the flowers while still on the plant a 10x-30x magnifying glass is much better and easier to see what's going on. Higher power needs a steady surface or else it's nearly impossible to keep the subject in focus which is why a lower power is best for our needs.

    you should look on the leaves next to the hairs.. usually top of bud is good to see.. you will see small white dots on them wth your naked eye. zoom there with the mag.
