Yes. If you standardized the pots you will use, it helps to bring several pots with you (to fit check side by side). I use 1020 trays that are white, expensive and crappy thin. I’m looking for sturdier ones, but you can’t find them in white. If I didn’t already build carts that are built around the size of the 1020 tray, I’d switch to white pizza dough trays like Matt uses. The nice thing about 1020 trays and the hydrofarm 5x5 x7 white square pots that Matt and Leah sell is that they fit in a 2 x 4 matrix inside the trays (so 8 pots/plants) per tray.
Depending on if the plant you get is newly divided, or the height of your tray, you might need to drill / punch holes in it to have the water spill out before it would reach the top of your tray.
I made the mistake of buying some of the smaller size white kitchen trays from Walmart without fit checking and you can’t fit 2 side by side. So lots of wasted space.
The under the bed storage trays show in the above photo is not a standard 1020 tray though.
