I would go with a 5" pot personaly.
We primarily use 3" pots to reduce the shipping costs, with the weight of wet soil and all.
We have had plants in 3" pots for a couple of years without a problem... but I think 4-5" pots are ideal... especially if you have more than 1 plant in the pot.
HOWEVER, I've never seen an adverse effect from the 3" pot being used long term... one reason why we continute to use them [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
The minimum pot size is around 3-4 inches. So yeah they should be fine like Phil said. BUT you can create a very neat site like I did. Take around 8-10 CP's like VFT and some Sarracenia and plant them all in a 15-10 inch pot. It is an awesome site to see. Very cool look to it.
nep g, i might just do that. Ill probably get a large 2 gallon pot and plant smaller temperate cp's in em.
Good deal. It is a very nice patio or outdoor conversation piece. I will put mine right on my steps outside this year. Or in front of my greenhouse to lure people!

Hmm... After I find out just exactly how my other plants grow, that may seem like a good idea... Of course, I would need motivation... and with me, well, let's just say HA!!!
Yeah, I love getting people to ask me questions about cp. It's great fun telling people VFTs are from North Carolina. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
As soon as I get a vft it gets repotted. It seems to help.
The resovoir type pots work really well and are low maintenance. Although, I think that taller pots are better since I always have roots on the bottom of my pots
