I wouldn't bother to cut a hole in the lid. They don't need much light. Just make sure you tape up the bottom if you are casing directly in the container.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson

are you covering the sides around the substrate layer to avoid mushies growing inbetween the 2?

the light thing is really only important to initiate pinning. some believe that if the light is coming from above, the mushrooms will, inturn, grow toward the light. but there are those who dont think so, or dont really mind scattered pins.
its all up to you man.
