Size of the pot matters for several reasons. The bigger the pot the bigger the plant will grow and rewards. The bigger the pot the less work it will take to maintain the container. A small pot will mean more often watering. As for size for one plant I would say somewhere in the one gallon size on the low end up to several gallons or more on the bigger side. A one gallon pot in the summer heat of Tennessee will need to be watered daily. You will also need to fertilize on a very regular basis for best growth. Hope that helps and let me know if you have questions.
