    Here is a link to a product, a plastic pot, designed for maximum aeration to plant roots when those roots are trying to live in a plastic pot that may be too wet and warm for suitable oxygen availability. Helps keep the roots from dying of suffocation. Air Cone Pots

    Here is a link to a supplier of "coir". A more easily renewable potential alternative to peat moss or Sphagnum. Some growers are having good success with it.Coir link

    Joe,

    I found a supplier of coir as well, from the SE

    http://www.rolanka.com/

    but your source has some other valuable commodities as well.
    Would the compost green up with those opaque pots, unless you were using the high bark % of most orchid mediums?
