That's probably a sufficient amount of time. The only reason they need light at all is to know that it's time to grow and to know which way to grow. 6-8hrs ought to be just peachy, though my cat uses a 12/12 cycle.

TMC states that shrooms pinned normally with only a few NANOseconds of light each day. so a flick of light should be enough to get the m to pin although it is standard practice to do slightly more than that. good luck.

There is no set time, in growing anything its what feels right to you. For instance when growing persay flowers outside, does mother nature keep the same schedule daily. Only gets dark at so time. My suggestion is mimic the outside. in the morning open it up a little, in the afternoon open all the way let light get in and when the sun goes down, close it.
