Will lid suffocate soaking seeds?

While soaking palm seeds in water, is it ok to close the lid of the bowl, pot, container etc. completely or will that suffocate the seeds if the lid is kept closed for several days?

It would probably grow mold. Let some air in.

Thanks for advise. I placed the palm seeds in warm water in a sun room and there are those gnats and flies, so I was worried that they may mess it up, but anyway I'm changing water every day.
