12/12 works great throughout cropping cycles.

Also i have my chamber lined with perlite on the bottom and a tropic air humidifier and air exchanger on 6 on 6 off should i change that? Should humidity be adjusted once pinning has started?

Pins produce most prolifically in high humidity with plenty of moisture and fresh air exchange for transpiration which also promotes prolific pinning :wink: Once pins are set and start to mature you will want to lower the RH to increase transpiration, this will result in the mushroom absorbing moisture (from air,casing and substrate) and evaporation which will occur in an environment at less than 100%, the farther away from this the more transpiration occurs 92% seems to be the optimum median for cubies. This (transpiration) is the vehicle for cell division (maturing). FYI

Ur knowldege and patience w/noobs is greatly appreciated. Couple questions to clear up.

So since pinning just started i should keep the TropicAire going at 6 on 6 off? I also havn't sprayed the perlite since birth last week should i give it a good spray? Once teh pins have reached ?? (length) i should stop using the tropicaire? Tahnks again man if it wasn't for pros like yourslef i would never have made it this far!!!

Simulate more of a natural cycle of 12hrs on/12hrs off rather than 6on-6off-6on etc...

Use light cycle from primordia formation to the end of the very last flush.

I have the light at 12/12 but the tropicaire at 6 on 6 off i also have a layer of perilite in the bottom.

If your talking cakes then keep it as it is, if your talking casings then it would be beneficial to lower RH somewhat however you decide.
