the thin ones that are everywhere are not really tall enough for the pots or they are so flimsy you can't pick them up with liquid in them. I was thinking of going to walmart and getting cheap bowls but any idea's?

What exactly are you asking for...do you want trays underneath your plants like the bottom of a humidity tray? Or something else? I can think of several places for trays if thats what you want.

guess I should have said saucer. like so. I want something deeper since I don't think I will get a week from one. but the clear plastic ones are too flimsy you can't even pick them up with liquid in them.

I bought a bunch of food service containers on Amazon and they are perfect, heavy weight saucers. You can get them in different sizes and shapes...I've been using them for 2 years and they are great. This is one of the sizes I bought...
Amazon.com: Reditainer - 12 Round Food Storage Containers with Lids - Microwaveable & Dishwasher safe (32 Ounce): Food Savers: Home & Kitchen

Different sizes and number in packages are available.

I usually look around in the housewares section of a big box store for 'saucers' to put under plants. I find quite a variety of options there.

If you don't care about plants sharing water, you could buy a rectangular plastic wash tub. Or, bigger, a mortar mixing tub at a hardware store.

Anytime you have standing water you will have mosquitos trying to breed.

The "throw away" plastic storage containers at the grocery store are great options when you need smaller sizes. I use those for some of my 4" pots.

I was trying to keep them separate but since I use one big bucket to dip all my mounted orchids in it may be pointless.

Deli containers and yogurt containers (like Fage).
Ceramic ramekins come in many sizes.
Children's plastic and melamine bowls.
Price and imagination are your limits.
