Worth a try, I'd be worried about rotting though. They'll need feeding as well by that time, not a lot of nutrients in water
pot them up, who knows what may crop up and stop you building the pits. At least if they are in small pots they can tick over for a bit, leave them in water too long and you risk losing them.
I'd pot them up for at least a season - you don't want to be putting them into their final homes too soon - the soil will get stale. I'd pot them up into terracotta - not sure why but I've a feeling they'll do better.
