I want to transplant my Monkey Pot plant. It has well out grown it's 6" hanging pot. Often during the hot summer, I have it sitting in a bowl of water as it loves to be bogged. Is there a hanging pot that holds a reservoir of water for plants like this? I know most like pots to drain. But without keeping this plant in the pond or in a bowl full of water, I would rather have something made for its needs. Second solution is to put the pot into another hanging pot without holes and put water in the outside hanging pot bottom.

Google "hanging baskets with reservoir" and you will come up with all sorts of nifty ideas. I especially like this one:
