One of the #1 challenges I have with newer organic growers is that they will many times cut themselves short by using a container that is too small.

That simply means that more soil will go much further and make your life easier. I see the most struggles under 5 gallons and the most success over 5 gallons. So you decide what to do with your space. But if you have more room, I'd suggest going up to 25 gallons or whatever you can still move, and if you don't need to move the pots around consider a Geo-Planter No-Till indoor grow bed!
