The word “trichome” comes from the greek and it means “hair” and actually trichomes are little hairs you can see on many plants, you must have seen them at least once.

These can help the plant to protect itself against other organisms or the prevent water loss.

    Oh NICE! I LOVE Trichomes! They do so many things and they have so many shapes! Some are glandular! Did you find any glandular ones?
