Oh god,I've been doing that for decades to this day. I like the pots ability to keep plants where you want them..no spread of runners. Some plants grow much faster in pots when you put heavy feeders in pots with potting soil covered with gravel. Sword plants,Crypts,Bacopa,Nuphar japonica come to mind. Others,you can use pots that are 6" inches deep with no potting soils..but plants love the root room and depth..like Jungle Val.
I used to use ceramic pots picked up at thrift stores..glazed...now any black plastic pot with no drainage holes works. Again,some I use soil under, others none.
