I do something similar with orchids on mounts - water them well, let them dry a little (so the media / lfsm) is damp, then pop them in a sealed tote. I'll leave a crack in the lid, or add a fan depending on how long I'm gone. I wouldn't bother with it for 4-5 days.
I think what you've done for your pings looks like a great solution! Not sure how much 'testing' time you have ... but the evaporation should be diminished by the closed top, I'm imagining it will still be moist when you return ( or at least humid inside). Hope you update this, so we can learn with you.
If you do have time to experiment with it before your trip, it might be interesting to try less light. I find that those yesom panels (or equivalent) do put off some heat. If you don't want to add more heat to the system, then two panels would easily be fine for the period you're describing. My pings get 2 panels for a 4' shelf over the winter - they green up a bit, but still grow fine.
