Depending on media and if you use the tray method, pot height can be of significance....Shorter pots and more absorbent media lead to wetter conditions while taller pots and mineral-based media promote drier conditions. Too wet can lead to rot and too dry can kill younger pings and restrict growth. Leaves resting on pot edges can be damaged as well.
I use standard 10 x 20 nursery trays, so prefer pots that neatly fit the tray either 4 across or 3 across. Selection will also depend on if you want 1 plant per pot or multiples.
If you are just starting out, I would not commit to a lot of pots of any particular size. Experiment a bit to evolve your own style and see what works best for your conditions.
The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shoreline of wonder.
