T.A.T. “Albino Riptide” Mushroom Spore Swab Pack


If you want to buy TAT “Albino Riptide” swabs, be cautious as TAT “Albino Riptide” spores are “active spores” which are for microscopy or artistic purposes. We will not complete your order if you contact us regarding the cultivation of active spores. Similarly, for legal reasons if you mention cultivating active spores or ask for cultivating advice, you will be subsequently banned from the site.

These spores are from a species that produces psilocybin and psilocin. For legal reasons they can only ship to 47 out of the 50 United States. Shipping is unavailable to California, Idaho, and Georgia.

Sonoran Spores acquires these spores and photos from outside, trusted sources in a legal manner.  Further, Sonoran Spores does not condone or participate in the cultivation of psilocybin/psilocin producing or “active” species. Sonoran Spores also does not have any mycelium or fruiting bodies of psilocybin and psilocin producing species. We will not sell any products containing this so do not ask.

Spore Visibility Disclaimer: When you buy TAT “Albino Riptide” swabs, visibility is dependent on the characteristics of the spores themselves. As a result, not all spore swabs will look the same visually. All swabs are unique and may not look identical to each other or the picture above. Despite these visible differences, spore swabs are still viable for microscopy research.

T.A.T. “Albino Riptide” Spores Information

TAT “Albino Riptide” is a part of the TAT genetic line. It is a cross of the True Albino Teachers (TAT) and Tidal Wave. These two varieties contain mutations, giving the mushrooms a fascinating look. Firstly, the TAT genes give them its white color due the absence of pigmentation. Secondly, the Tidal Wave side of the genetics gives it its odd cap shape. We thank the TAT syndicate for their hard work on the TAT Project. This project led to the producing of new and interesting genetics.

True Albino Teachers (TAT) have become extremely popular within the microscopy community in the last year or so. It’s an entirely new genetic line that was first started by Jik Fibs. OG TAT is what started it all. It was an albino mutation observed in 5 specimens in a tub of Golden Teachers. Jik Fibs then took samples from those albinos and began to isolate the genetics. Soon, it was completely isolated and produced albino mushrooms every time. Following this was the creation of the Facebook group called the “TAT syndicate.” From there, the TAT syndicate began finding new interesting isolation and crosses such as TAT “Yeti” and TAT “Jack Frost”

In order to provide you with the cleanest possible products, we make and package all of the TAT “Albino Riptide” spore swabs in front of Laminar Flow Hoods with HEPA filters. These HEPA filters have an efficiency rating of 99.97%. Meaning that the filter removes 99.97% of particles in the air.

Microscopic Features:

When you buy TAT “Albino Riptide” swabs its important to note that because they are an albino variety, they will have transparent spores. When spores are clear they can bruise blue leading the swab to appear blue rather than clear. Once you put them under the microscope, they will be clear. The spores are subellipsoid (ellipse) shaped and they are present on a 4-spored basidia. They are approximately 13×8 micrometers in size. The caps are 30-60mm in diameter with a conical to ovate shape. The edges can curl upwards and the veils commonly do not fully form of break.

Additional information

Research Difficulty



Subtropical. These mushrooms are known to thrive in subtropical climates places where summers get hot and humid, and the winters are mild. Usually these climates are found between the latitudes of 25 degrees and 35 degrees and the southeast side of all continents.


Extremely Light Depositor Mushrooms that typically have problems with producing spores, either because of genetic lineage or species variability. Typically these mushrooms produces spores on 50 percent or less of fully mature fruits and rarely drop them from the gills.
