can i/should i repot VFTs now?

15 years ago

So I have these two traps that I got from walmart. i hate going there but they were the only place around that had them. But I digress, these things are in those tiny little plastic pots I'm sure everyone is familiar with. It looks like they're in straight up peat moss. Everything I read recommend s a 50/50 mix of perlite and peat. If I shouldn't repot, do I need to keep the pots in standing water to keep the soil moist or is the drainage in the peat too poor? The rosette of the plants is kind of sunken in the peat, and the bottom sides of the leaves are contacting the soil. Is this harmful to the plants?
