    Hey! I have been using a large Mag-light for candling, but its just not clear. I have a piece of cardbord with a small hole to make the light more concentrated, but I cant see any veins so I'm thinking its just not working well. I have heard you can use a heat lamp, will that work? any ideas will be greatly appreaciated.


    Thanks so much,

    Rose

    I bought a flashlight from Harbor Freight. It is a LED black 4inches long for under 3bucks. It works great.

    if you look at my other thread, 'growing blobs??' turns out my flashlight works fine I just couldn't understand why I wasn't seeing veins
