Given your description of the problem I'd say your diagnosis is right on track - inadequate air exchange. 8 exchanges per day may be excessive, but if your humidity is maintaining itself then you should be golden. Good luck.

Actually, three to four air exchanges per HOUR is what you want during the fruiting cycle. I also recommend a 12/12 lighting cycle.

You also want zero standing water in your perlite. The function of perlite is to evaporate water to provide humidity. With standing water your perlite can't do its job. Drain out all standing water and watch your humidity jump to 99%.

It is normal when you have a very large pinset for most to abort. That is the nature of things.

There is no need to use a HEPA filter in the growing environment. A grow area need not be sterile. Massive air exchange, and high humidity is what you want. Any way you figure out to achieve those goals will work. I hope this helps.

I am aware that Stamets recommends multiple air exchanges per hour, but I am also aware of the limitations of perlite humidification. Cakes will pin beautifully with far fewer air exchanges than Stamets recommends. They will not pin at all in a low humidity environment.

So long as it does not keep the humidity too low or dry the cakes then it should not pose a problem.
