Storing plants for planting

Setting up a 6 gallon nano tank. Dry scape is all setup. I have some moss and java fern coming on tuesaday then a shipment of anubias nana petite and a few other plants will be coming on friday or saturday. My question is on how to store the moss and java fern. I do not have other tanks. Should I plant them when they arrive and keep the tank moist with plastic wraps or keep them in a bucket. I do want to plant all the plants when the tank is dry.

Hi there.
You can store Moss
In any container. Just put the moss inside and fill it up with water.
About java fern I don't really know about that.
I think they can survive just floating for 3 day? I am not sure about the java fern. Never got one in my hand.
And yes the moss will survive forever as long there's some light shine thru
