Let them ripen-they will- if they havent already -start producing runners which will give you new plants.

You dont want to keep a basket plant in the basket for more than a year- they will have exhusted all the nutrient in the compost so either best disposed of or planted in the garden -then you can start afresh for next year with the rooted runners
