    Just a couple thoughts - Is that a ceramic pot? I only use plastic, so that nothing bad leaches into the media. Also, more important than the pot that it is in, is what the pot is sitting in, with respect to ensuring that it doesn't dry out. If it were me, I would use a plastic pot and sit in a container that holds a few inches of water - like a Gladware container. Plant looks good.

    Hmm...

    I would get a deeper watering tray, at least a few inches. That pot looks fully glazed so it's fine. I have a few VFT's growing in glazed pots that are doing good.

    Lets hope Jesus lives on.

    Unglazed pottery will NOT leech anything if it's made in the US. Terracotta could leech iron, but ceramic pottery (white kind) can't and wont.

    Whenever I use unglazed pottery it tends to get moldy and nasty. I just stay away from it completly.
