With tin foil it is unnecessary to put holes because the foil does not create an air tight seal anyways.

you want the co2 to build up if you're covering the casing. i assume you're tryig to get it to colonize the casing layer... so just cover it with tin foil (no holes) and put it in the incubator for 3 days or so. Pull it out after that and see if the mycelium is poking through, it should be. If it's uneven, patch those spots and put it in the fruiting chamber!

okay i cover with tin foil with tons of holes in it on top and it works great but its really up to you

why the hell would you want the Co2 to build up in there? thats like strangling the fucking mycelium.

it still has to somewhat colonize the casing layer. with no co2 it wont do that. from what i understand using the foil you are recreating the environment that the jar had in the incubator

A high CO2 concentration is one of the things that keeps the mycelium in vegetative growth mode. Too much can be bad, it will cause the mycelium to stop growing, but this is really only an issue with jars.. there is plenty of ventilation with just tinfoil.
