Puerto Rican Casing, HELP!!!
    #739708 - 07/11/02 04:55 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

ok, its a one cake casing, crumbled and put it in a circular container about 10 inches high and about 3-4 inches in diameter with a air-tight lid. i did a straight verm double-ended casing with damp verm on the bottom. cumbled cake in the middle , and another about 1/2 - 1 inch damp verm on top. The mycelium is recovering and have taken over a pretty big portion of the top verm layer, i cant check the bottom verm layer but that has probably been taken over. I was giong over some old post's and realized that puerto ricans have been known for their agressiveness and their overlay. So i stuck it in the fridge for a cold shocknig for 24 hours untill tomorrow.

1.Was the cold shocking a good idea?
2.Also what can i do if the mycellium takes over the top layer of verm?
3.Any other sugestions on what i should do to get it to fruit?

I have the exact same casing as you, straight verm, 1 Puerto cake, first casing ever.

I was wondering how to avoid overlay and what extra precautions i should take with PR's....

Sorry i cant help

just fruit them bad boys when your mycelium has taken over say 25-30% of the top layer...puertos will colonize very fast... to fruit just drop your temps to mid 70's F, and fan them 3x a day...you should have fruits within 1.5 weeks from the day you fruit them if all goes well....i have never used a dounle sided verm/ casing....i promise that anyone w/ access to dung should definetly try out roadkills dung tek because 1 cake will go a very long way in comparison to plain casing or birthing a cake...very easy tek too...anyone can do it...hope i helped..

For PR put them into the fruiting chamber first and don`t incubte them any more.
I`ve also got 2 casings of PR at the mo.
ANd I fruited them straight and they colonisedf the surface and started fruiting
