I was doing some "hunting" on Amazon (U.S.) and found some nice, medium-sized pots for my carnivorous plants:

Truedays pots

1-gallon
  • Top diameter: 6.25 inches (15.8 cm)
  • Bottom diameter: 4.25 inches (10.8 cm)
  • Height: 6.75 inches (17.1 cm)
  • Saucer depth: 0.85 inches (2.1 cm)
$18.99 for 10

2-gallon
  • Top diameter: 8.75 inches (22.2 cm)
  • Bottom diameter: 6 inches (15.2 cm)
  • Height: 8.5 inches (21.6 cm)
  • Saucer depth: 1.25 inches (3.1 cm)
$34.99 for 10
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MCZ8KSV

I bought a set in both sizes, and I really like them:
  • Very sturdy
  • Good drainage
  • Tall (good "leg room" for the roots)
  • Come with saucers
  • Inexpensive
I plan to buy a lot more of them in the next month or two. I'm moving most of my flytraps into larger "mother" pots like Matt does with his. It's easier to grow them this way long-term than to keep them in multiple smaller pots, especially when you have as many plants as I do.

You might also be interested in checking out Roberts Flower Supply -- http://www.orchidmix.com/cat7.htm. It's run by a nice elderly couple. As a heads up, if you do decide to order from RFS, they don't have a "shopping cart." They're a bit more old school. (But then, they aren't exactly spring chickens so .....)
