Thanks for the additional links. Earlier I had read through the site and thought that to use the clay pot as a filter the pot needed to be one made by their people so one from the garden center would not work. Did I understand the different pages? Also, if one needs to use their pots, did you find an address or other contact info?

Stephani, it would seem that the common garden center pots might not work, I went through their website to try to find out how to get a pot like they make, I don’t think it would be a good idea to ship them very long distances because of the possibility of breakage, even hairline cracks would be a problem. I am thinking about trying to find a “local” potter that could make a pot with the proper material and size. Don’t know how successful I’ll be, but if I find something, I’ll be sure to post about it here.

    I HOPE you can get a ceramic pot from the garden center of a local store. I’m in the Ozarks (Missouri,) and don’t want to have something shipped (because of the cracking potential.) Are we completely sure that unglazed ceramic pots won’t work?

    Thanks because it sure sounds like a good practical idea.
