Dom....no the holes in the bottom are not sealed up.If you find your pots leak you can put a bead around the inside of the holes in hopes of sealing the leak.
If you need for any reason to treat your plants with BATS or wish to fertilize them with a light liquid fertilizer any additional liquid will drain from that hole so you don't want to seal it shut and end up drowning your plant in the 4 inch pot.
If you have larger plants and don't think a 4 inch pot is big enough then just go to larger size pots....ie...8 & 6 in. or 10 & 8 in.
You can also use the terra cotta azalia pots if you want shorter pots.
Also you will need to check the water level between the pots every 3-5 days and 'top it off'. In the summer esp. winter they don't go thru the water so fast.
Flowers leave some of their fragrance in the hand that bestows them.
