What is a Misco or Misco type pot and where do you get them?
A Misco or Misco-type pot is a plastic, self-watering pot often used for semi-hydro (s/h) growing with orchids. Misco is a brand name, hence, there are others out there without the Misco name. The pot is basically composed of two parts, the upper part with holes which inserts into a lower section which serves as the reservoir. The reservoir is filled from an opening on the outside of the pot.
Misco and Misco-type pots are readily available at most garden shops and discount stores.
