I start the fruiting process when the vallies of the casing is 20% through.If i wait any longer i get overlay.I cold shock in the fridge for 48 hours,and then make sure they get plenty of air exchanges in the fruiting chamber.They are harder to fruit than most cubes,but the potency is so good it's worth the trouble.

Once the mighty oak,was a nut who held his ground.

Sup and welcome to the world of Mushroom Cultivation.
Now the way to get the best flush from a MycoBag is to case it when it is fully colonized  Link On How To Case.
Your gonna want to fan your terrarium more often than with most strains of Cubensis, I fanned my PR's up to 5 times a day.
It is also good to initiate fruiting early as PR's tend to be a quite aggressive strain and will tend to overlay if left in incubation for too long.
Your also gonna want to drop your temp to about 70-75 for fruiting, or if it was colonized in room temp, I would suggest Cold Shocking your casing in the fridge for 24 Hours. Another thing that is beneficial, is to up the humidity a tad to initate pinning, but drop it as soon as you see pins, you could also attain this by lightly misting the casing layer until you see primordia, then immediately stop misting, and don't mist again until the next flush.   

Good Luck and Happy Shrooming :grin:
