Orchids appreciate being potbound, blooming best when they're crowded. But, the time does come when they need to be divided. Each kind of orchid has different requirements, but all can be divided after flowering has finished and the plant is resting during the winter months. Leave at least 3 shoots on each division, and stake each newly potted plant to help keep it upright.
