Was thinking about going out a lunch today 12PM and get some plants for my tank. Won't be able to put them in until about 5:30. Would NEVER do that with fish but would plants be okay?

They may be okay for only 6 hours or so, but If you can get some wet paper towels in the bag and wrap it around the plants so they retain moisture, they will be better off.

+1. Some wet paper towels should keep them fine until the early evening as long as they're not subjected to too drastic of a temperature change while in their bag.

Yes. Wet paper towels is a must. They work great, not only for aquatic plants, but for terrestrial plants aswell. In fact, 15 years ago, my aunt brought back a lemon bush/tree sappling from Italy. She gave it to my grandmother who lives with us and it frickin was alive and grew! Its HUGE now. Heck, it was wrapped in a little moist paper and in a little ziplock baggy, and it survived for an easy two days...
