I'd take the saucers off the bottoms of the pots so you can see how much water is draining out so you'll know when to stop applying water. Each of the plants you've mentioned will have small root systems and you can safely space each plant 3-4 inches apart. They will look full (but not crowded) and each should have plenty of root space in the basket for healthy growth. Enjoy!
