Default Using old substrate as dry start grow out?

Hi guys, just wanted to know if I can use an old Aquasoil or Fluval Stratum for my dry start grow out/ farm?

Right now I have about 1 bucket of used fluval stratum, have been more than one year being planted under water. I really dislike the idea of disposing these soil. So maybe I can use it to grow plants in dry start setup? Also I'm aware that this soil probably has little to none nutrients in it, so I would like to know how to "recharge" or put back the nutrients back into the soil.

I need to know what should I do or prepare before I start planting.

Thank you!
