TRICHOMES credit : @thingsfromsteinfarm 🍃💚 TRICHOMES - comes from the Greek word Trichoma meaning ‘Hair’ . TRICHOMES are fine outgrowths or appendages from plants, algae, lichens.
THC ,Terpenes and cannabinoid s are all made inside TRICHOMES and start to form as the plant begins to flower. The colour of the Trichome is used to determine sometimes when to harvest....the colours can be clear, white, Amber or brown.
There are 3 types of TRICHOMES
#Bulbus Trichome which is the smallest and hard to see
#Capitate Sessile Trichome....these are the next size up and cover the plant more than bulbous
#Capitate Stalked Trichome....these are the largest type.
TRICHOMES also act as a defence....they ward animals away ready to munch on them because of their bits taste and aromas make their flowers unpalatable.
Trichomes are like crystals that cover the buds an leaves they are sticky shiny and carry amazing aromas
