WANTED: self-watering pots, inner pots needed

Someone gave me 3 of the outer part of the self-watering pots. Does anyone have the inner pots that they would like to rehome?

I'd love to have a few more of the whole self-watering pots as well.

I have a few plants to trade- this is straight from my trade list:

Aloe plants
Thanksgiving cactus cuttings
red & white together
bright pink
African Violet leaves (not named, I know the colors)
Strawberry Begonia planlets
Mother of Thousands babies- Kalanchoe diagremontiana

Thanks for looking!

What kind of self-watering pots are these?

A few kinds are:

Home Depot's system where you have an outer ceramic pot and then a clay pot on the inside. Neither of these have holes. You then put water between them and the inner pot soaks up moisture.

Earthbox/Gardener's supply which is a large rectangle all one piece.

Walmart which has a very small reservoir in what look like normal round plastic pots.

Homemade Earthboxes out of either large rectangular containers or 5 gallon food buckets.

They're the Home Depot ones you describe. I found a similar one on ebay with a picture to show you- see the link below. Thanks for looking!
