Default Two in the one pot

I buy my orchids as very small plants, usually about 3 inches high in 2 inch pot/tubes. Mainly cattleya and oncidium, and hybrids.

Looking at some of these, itís clear that several are actually two plants in the same pot. These are mericlones so I guess someone got a bit sloppy when they were deflasking.

My question is whether there is any problem with allowing them to stay together, or should they be split up into their own pot. I canít see an issue either way myself, but maybe there is something Iím overlooking.

While they have growing space in the same pot, I believe there's no problem in keeping them together.

Once they get bigger, you might want to separate them. The various judging organizations do not allow more than one plant in a pot, I believe. It makes for a nice full planting, though.
