But the others are all another case, in that they apparantly have a distinctively longer "gestation" period in which they wait until they "decide" to fruit. Why this is, is unknown and no theory can satisfy the mystery. But even here, they can be predicted to fruit on schedule if everything goes OK while the cake is in-vitro.
The procedure is simple. First, inoculate the jar. Usually in about 2 weeks, colonization will be complete (cake is all white). Delay birthing the cake. This delay seems to make for bigger fruitings in the end. After about one month (at normal room temperatures), the cake is birthed and the PF double ended cake casing tek is performed. If the room temperatures are higher (as in summer time) - removing the cake can occurr sooner. You can birth at any time after colonization is complete, but a delay of a couple of weeks seems to be helpful.
If the cake starts to develope a yellowing color in places, birth immediately. This is water damage. Likewise, if you see any blueing, birth immediately. The cake will recover nicely after a few days under the casing tek. But as long as the cake remains white and healty in-vitro, try to delay birthing until about a month goes by.
After birth, perform the casing tek and place the cake into a humidified terrarium. Great fruiting can be had in about 6 weeks. With the Treasure coast, it is about 7 to 8 weeks. The Treasure Coast is the most difficult one, because it is the slowest to fruit. But with the PF casing tek, the cake can remain healthy for weeks after birth while gestating and "deciding" when to fruit.
