From what I've read, I think that mushrooms grow at their fastest rate in darkness. Therefore, I'd recommend a 12/12 over a 24/0, or something more like a 6/18 or even say a 3/21. These are phototropic, not photosynthetic. They don't use light for food, only for a sense of direction.

I think that you still want a little bit of light each day (maybe 1-2 hours, so that the mushies know what direction up is) but yes they do most of their growth in darkness.

Edit -- Check the FAQ though, cause I may be off.

I gave them light untill they pinned and then put them into complete darkness. What do you know they grew up and didn't grow towards light since there was none. I would still give it light though for any remaining pins to pop up.

I guess what I am trying to say is that they grow towards the force of gravity and not towards the light. Alot of people say that they grow towards light but I am still highly scepticle. Someone prove me wrong on this.
