    Repot it. Those cubes are not drained and most of the time the Peat is bone dry. But DO NOT throw them away, they come in handy.

    Trust me, as your collection grows you will find all kinds of uses for the cubes.

    As long as the complete media is wet then drilling holes in the bottom is cool.

    See my picture of a cobra lily in your other topic. I use the bottom portion to rest the repotted plant upon, so I can water and allow for drainage.
