How long can I keep Amazonia soil open?

I have have all my hardscaping material and would like to start messing with the layout until all of my plants come in. I've read that Amazonia soil should stay moist so would putting it in the tank and letting the hardscape sit for a week or so do any damage?

The bag doesn't look like there's much, if any moisture inside. Should I just add water to the soil line or mist and cling wrap the top of the tank?

Where have you heard it needs to be kept moist? Its dry in the bag... it certainly doesn't matter if its dry in the tank.

I would resist wetting and drying, wetting and drying but it should certainly be fine to just dump it in and play with hardscape while it is dry.
