If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Terrarium moss is commonly grown and harvested from the wet and woodsy outdoors
It does not have a hardy plant zone because of its wild nature. Moss is a bryophyte which means it is a non-vascular land plant. It does not have vessels within it to support water transport nor does it have a root system like a normal plant. It grows like a thick, green, plush mat and is great for terrarium use. It is mainly grown in northern climates.
Moss do not flower or produce seeds. They reproduce themselves through pores. It is a rhizoid that produces filamentous outgrowth on the bottom side that looks like fine hair. This root hair anchors the plant and allows it to absorb water in the same manner that the fibers in a paper towel absorbs water.
Moss is essential in a terrarium, it provides for the conditions that other plants need to survive
For moss to grow it needs a lot of water and can live in water slightly submerged. It prefers shaded boggy areas but can grow in direct sunlight if it is provided the necessary water that it needs. Moss is versatile and durable and can be found to grow between cracks in sidewalks, on rocks and tree trunks, waterfall spray areas, and beside streams.
Terrarium Moss is the perfect bed ground cover. It provides coverage that looks like a beautiful plush green rug in the great outdoors. Its versatility and significance in the ecosystem help to maintain the survival of much plant life.
