Q.Can I Plant My 5 Orchid Plants Together

Zone Northampton | Anonymous added on May 22, 2021 | Answered

I have a beautiful display of orchids which have been given to me over the past four years. I’m no expert, but somehow I’ve managed to keep them blooming, they look magnificent. One orchid is a miniature. Would I be able to pot them altogether in a large pot, leaving them in the window where they seem to love it. They are taking over and the window is nearly obscured.

I think it would be very awkward. They like shallow plantings, and the large leaves would be going all directions. Plus the close proximity might set them up for fungal disease. If any are different they might need a different type of care. You could try keeping them in their grower's pots and setting them together inside a large planter. Just avoid too much crowding. Cover the top with dried Spanish moss.
