I am not able to buy ready-made semi-hydro pots locally and am not very impressed with my own converted plastic cups. Has anyone come up with a creative DIY semi-hydro pot for orchids*, or just anything that's more attractive than disposable cups?

(*By which I mean a tallish, fully enclosed plant pot with drainage holes on the side 1 to 1.5 inches up from the bottom, creating a small water reservoir in the base of the pot. The water wicks up though expanded clay media to the plant roots.)
