I don't think it matters how you put the plants in but I'd recommend putting them in the soil then put the cap on because I put them in after I put that cap on and after I put the water in and it made a mess but I was too frustrated to start over but it still looks nice!
Usually after you put in sand and soil the water will get cloudy and you will most likely have to do like 3 or 4 water changes[what I did] for the water to get clear.
AS far as adding water without disturbing the plants, Its a semi-long process but it worked for me, use a plastic cup to add the water in verrrry slowly cause if you try to rush it, it will make the mess bigger.
From my experience last night. I'll post some pictures for you to see in a minute[ FINALLY GOT TO TAKE PICTURES!]
