pot size for Sarracenia

Next summer I want to try some Sarracenia. They say the larger the pot the larger the plant. What is the minim size pot for a robust Sarracenia. How big a pot could I use before it is too big to benefit the plant size?

My wife wanted me to do some "container gardening". So I had a couple token items - tomatoes and an attempt with strawberry seeds, which failed miserably.

Hey Jim I think Dustin is talking about the plants in the two middle buckets in the second picture. Looks like maybe nasturtium on the left?? Maybe the same on the right but looks more like an ivy to me. Just a guess!

Oh.... those.... they're "Devil's Claw". They are classified as quasi-carnivorous plants.
