Temporary Home

Hi, I have a bunch of plants sitting at the post office while I wait out this snow storm. My tank is not quite ready for them when I do get them home and I'm just wondering what kind of temporary home I should give them. I have a smaller tank that I can use. Can I just fill it with water and put them in it for a few days. I'm waiting for the substrate to arrive and it's going to be here on Monday or Tuesday. Thanks.

just grab a 5 gallon bucket, fill it, and call it good.

Most will be fine in the bags, staying damp. Almost all aquarium plants grow emersed better or as well long-term, a few days will be fine. What most won't tolerate is cold, keep them warm, maybe under light, but not close.
