yes, stuff them with polyfil or cover them with tyvek
and it would be better to make them closer to the actual casings in the terrarium or fruiting chamber because CO2 is heavier than air...

If you have polyfill or tyvek, do not make the CO2 exchange holes at the top. Make them about half an inch up off your perlite on the sides and fill them with polyfill/cover with tyvek. Remember CO2 is heavier and will settle at the bottom of your PMP, though some people with argue this tek, those that have done it swear by it.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

you should put your casing container in another container with some wet perlite at the bottom and poke two holes in the bottom. Then place the whole thing in another container or bag. The perlite with assist with growth and the holes in the bottom will help air exchange and drain any standing water from the perlite. Just a suggestion
