Best pot shape for Alocasia?


I need to repot basically all my plants, but, I am very fond of my little A. Frydek.

Now I believe these grow new leaves from the center, but make plantlets on the sides ... so, should I use a shallow pot like a bulb pan - would that encourage spread? (And do I want to encourage spread? Thinking out loud.)

Or should I use a deeper, "regular" pot but maybe plant it higher in the pot so I can enjoy looking at it while it makes offsets? Right now it is in too deep and in a pot that's too small.

Does the plant care? I did a search but maybe I used the wrong terms. How do you-all decide these matters?
