I'm not experienced with tyvek, but it seems to me that you want to have the foil over everything else.

Otherwise the only hole you will have for gaseous exchange will be the tiny syringe (assuming you are using a syringe) hole.

Or else you could just tear out the foil away from the hole.

To keep excess water from spilling into the jar.

i thought you put the foil over the whole thing to keep the moisture form getting in during pc then remove it and incubate. Otherwise putting the foil under the lid will porvent ghas exchange

If you learn your PC you may not even need to bother with the foil.
When I get a new PC (have had 2) I do test runs with jars that contain
no substrate, instead a paper towel. I then test the various water levels
usinf the paper towel as the test medium.

The foil is to prevent the water that drips off the inside surface of the lid of the PC due to condensation from getting inside your jars. Put foil over the whole OUTside of the lid.

Tyvex is very water repellent with the glossy side up....you can see and feel a difference....foil is a goos safety measure though....
