When buying PC Gandalf spores, be aware that they’re considered “active spores” which are for microscopy purposes only. DO NOT CONTACT US ABOUT ANYTHING REGARDING CULTIVATING OR GERMINATING ACTIVE SPORES.
Shipping is unavailable to California, Idaho, & Georgia. These 3 states strictly prohibit the possession of spores from psilocybin and also psilocin producing mushroom species. Will refuse and subsequently void any orders made to these 3 states. Further, any payments made for orders to CA, ID, or GA will incur a $5 cancellation fee.
The provided images are for informational and educational purposes only and are used as a reference point only. Sonoran Spores also acquires all spores and photos from outside, trusted sources in a legal manner. We do not condone or participate in the cultivation of psilocybin or psilocin producing mushroom species.
When you buy PC Gandalf swabs, spore visibility is dependent on the characteristics of the spores themselves. As a result, not all spore swabs will look the same visibly. Despite any visible differences, they’re still viable for microscopy research.
PC Gandalf Mushroom Information
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 continue to produce new and interesting genetics.
These mushroom genetics are especially interesting as they are T.A.T. “Gandalf” mutation clone. The “PC” in the name means “Pin Clone” as they were genetically selected as they were pinning on agar. This resulted in an isolation that creates more mutated shaped and looking mushrooms than the standard Gandalf strain.
As evident in the photos, PC Gandalf is not as big and large as its regular counterpart. These mushrooms grow much smaller and fatter, similar to KSS buttons. They are the same pasty white and their caps have the same yellow hue in the center like the standard Gandalf. When they are touched they bruise a deep blue as well. Yet they are known to grow Enigma like gills, which are small clusters of mycelium that bunch together and create wavy “Brain like” structures.
This isolation can only be found here at Sonoran Spores! Meaning you can get your hands on genetics very few people have been able to. If you like being one of the first to study a strain, this one’s for you!

PC Gandalf Spore Swab Microscopic Features
When you buy “PC Gandalf” 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 20-60mm in diameter with a convex to flat shape. The edges tend to be wavy and commonly flip upwards.
