Will this work for emersed setup?

I found this plastic tupperware
Do I have to poke holes in it? Should I even use the lid?
Anyone have a few good links to more info on growing emersed?
I have HC in another tupperware with some saran wrap over it but I hate having to get the saran wrap back on it. The one pictured is larger too so I could let it grow in there for longer.

I'd still use plastic wrap as it is far more transparent than that lid, but the lid should work.

I suppose I can use a rubber band to help it stay on there, but I dont have any.
Hooray for supplies from work

As long as the humidity stays in the container and it doesn't block light you are good to go. I grew a bunch of UG with a tupperware dish inside a gallon lunch bag.

So what do I do if there's condensation covering the plastic wrap? I figured just leave it and let it do its own thing but if that's a problem I would like to fix it.
