Noobie question on fruiting Puerto Ricans
    #4268845 - 06/07/05 07:08 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Some descriptions of the Puerto Rican strain say it is "slow" to fruit. I'd like to hear some growers' experiences with fruiting this strain. What can I expect?

I have a pan of PR grown in a BRF PF jar then spawned in h poo and cased with 60/40 vermiculite/coco coir. I placed it in the refrigerator for about 12 hours when I saw myc peeking through the casing in a couple of places, then uncovered the pan and placed it in the fruiting chamber on wet Perlite this morning. Temps are around 76F?. I'm not seeing the humidity reach recommended levels in the chamber yet, but I expect the casing which is moist will help until I can rig some way to raise the humidity, perhaps with an aquarium pump and bubble stone in a jar of water. I'd be grateful for any suggestions from experienced growers.

In my experience they fruit similar to any other strain.

About your humidity, Pearlite works best if its not super-saturated. Keep the water line below the pearlite, so the pealite can evaporate moisture into the air. Thats all I do to keep it moist, and I live in a very dry enviroment.

edit- you say your humidity levels are low... How do you know this? Lack of visual condensation or some type of meter? If you are using a non-digital meter, then it is bassically useless, because it dosent detect humidity in the high range very well.
