    Or something like this maybe?

    LOL. .

    The container your plant is in, if it has holes in the bottom, you just place it in another container without holes in the bottom. Then you fill the bottom container (water tray) with water up a little bit so the soil is constantly damp. Many CPs love to be constantly damp. The holes in the bottom of the pot your plant is in will allow water to always be in the pot. You can use anything that holds water (like vft guy showed). I have used some pretty random stuff also, like the bottoms of the distilled water jugs I get.

    Don't use metal that's got copper or zinc for nepenthes. I think it's called galvanized steel, and while I love the song Galvanized, I'm not in the metal industry.

    Yes it is galvanized, and I wouldn't use anything chromed either as it has a layer between the base and chrome of usually brass, which is made of both copper and zinc yea, well if the chrome is chipped, problems.

    Well anyways her ya go, a picture is worth 1000 word's, so this should help spell it out.

    I love it! Nice illustration. I'm glad you labeled the arrow, because I was a little confused about what that might be and how that "line thingy" fit into the water tray process! lol.
