Default Substrate in drainage layer

I really screwed up my viv, when trying to drain the water from the drainage layer of clay balls, a lot of substrate got in there. I dug little hole in the corner to insert the siphon, as I had done once before, but this time discovered the landscape fabric I stupidly used as a barrier had deteriorated and it came apart. Anyway the drainage layer is now filled with mud in one corner. This is pretty bad yes? I think I need to redo . I dont know how I mucked it up so bad. I dont want the plants to drown so I guess I should do this soon? One of the earth stars is starting to flower will it be ok if I move it? I could try in another spot in the tank to drain the water, but what if I make it worse, and I cant get that mud out of the clay balls in the other corner now.
