Is it okay to replant something into a pot without holes on the bottom?

It's a beautiful pot but I don't want to harm the plant, you know...

Hi again bw,
Sure but I would put some pebbles or small rocks in the bottom so that there is some drainage for the plant when you water. Do not overwater your plant, water when necessary.

Ya def do the rocks, however, if you have a drill that would work, might consider drilling 3 or so sm holes in bottom. Just seems to work best.

My hubby drilled holes in the bottom of a glazed ceramic pot and did just fine, however, I can't be sure about porcelain. Am guessing with the proper bit that you probably could. ??

I have never used a drill before. I wasn't aware it could be done and quite frankly, I would be a bit concerned about it cracking. It's so pretty.

honestly tho i have a lovely jade plant in a pot with no holes in the bottom just put a bunch of gravel in the bottom and its ok .. i wouldnt dream of drilling out the pot

had i had some foresight with this particular plant i would have put it into a pot into the planter so i could pull it out and move it when needed . now its root bound in a lovely ceramic pot and at a point of removing and root shocking it and hope for the best or keep ignoring it and let its do it thing tongue sticking out smiley

so far letting it do its thing is working tongue sticking out smiley
