Can i check trichomes when lights are off

I've got a loupe with a white light on it, was thinking of going into tent and checking trichs while lights are off.. would this cause stress to the plants by putting a white light so close to the buds during lights off? Thank you

Not if you're quick man... Easier with the light on though, no?

Might be using HPS.

I open the tent up 5 minutes before lights on time and do my little faffing around then.

You can still check under HPS... Makes no real difference, I've never not been able to see clearly anyway. Maybe I've ate too many carrots or not tugged off enough. Who knows? :yinyang:

I found that taking a close up photo with my phone in the dark, Takes a really great pictures, after you can zoom in and see all those trikes. I've found it really tricky to get in there with a jewelers loop. Samsung s9 works great.

Hold the loupe close to your eye and move the plant/your head instead of the loupe... Also, get at least a 50x magnification.

Yes but i cant lean over 4 plants, and i really don't fancy moving my plants, so i turn the light off for a sec and take picture's with flash on. I have a jewelers loop x30, x60, x90, but the phone is easier and far higher detail.

 You are the one that's negative. I merely offered a possibility and you took it with a glass half empty. Never mind, go and have a toke.

Go for it bud, I've done those hundreds of times and never noticed any adverse affects. Think it's more the pro longed light leaks to be wary about. Like day light or artificial light leaking through your zips or passives for example during lights off.
