Any size should do, but the larger the diameter, the more surface area you will have on the slant. I would suggest 18 mm x 150 mm borosilicate culture tubes. PM me, I ought to be able to send you a few(they don't have screw tops); otherwise just use petris, or jars (jars waste a lot of agar though).

Something to think about, water storage. . .great for the home cultivator, IMO. Pretty much any size container will do, I've been storing strains in little 1.6 mL sterile snap-top tubes. Supposed to last longer than agar slants, with or without mineral oil. Easier to make, I'm sure PC'd dH2O is more than adequate.
Thanks to Anno for finding this reference:
