If it were me, I'd pick my favorite plant in each bucket and kill the others off by snipping them off at the surface of the soil (to not disturb the roots of the plant you're keeping). But maybe other folks have better ideas?
Since you can't take the bottom off of the bucket, I'd definitely bury the pots fully like Dan suggests. That will keep the roots cooler with the pot surrounded with soil.
