I've used Puerto Ricans. I'd just let them sit and wait till they fully colonize. If no contamination, let the fungi continue colonization. Cool walk-in chamber btw. Does it happen to have any kind of cross-draft-style fan (output side) and filter (input side) air exchange sub-system? I'm considering something similar by using a "box" fan (modded with filtered plenum) attached to the top of chamber to draw air from opposite middle side of chamber (port consisting of filtered opening).

I wouldn't make too much of the reports you read online concerning the performance of particular varieties.
I grew a few tubs of Puerto Ricans a couple of months ago (rye from agar, spawned to coir/verm). They were notably robust and contamination-resistant, and fruited as easily as any other variety I've grown. Fruits were sturdy and well-formed, and they seemed to thrive in the low room-temperature of my late-winter grow room. Really, the only distinctive feature I noticed about those PRs was that they had fairly tough stems and didn't bruise much. They were still producing regular flushes when I went on vacation a couple of weeks ago, so I buried them in the back yard. I returned from Europe a couple of days ago to find them popping up among the ferns and daylilies in my cool, rainy garden:

Puerto Ricans are or were one of the standouts, legend has good potency but hard to fruit. I grew them way back, those, B+ and EQ. The Puerto Ricans had consistent lower yield, but I don't recall trouble fruiting. Potency was high average. The B+ was the easiest fruiter, high yield with never ending flushes. Only did a few cakes with the EQ, really don't recall much about them.
