I bid on three Bird of Paradise plants on ebay. I received one pot. Messaged seller, and he said it's three plants in one pot. Before I'd received his answer, I repotted it into a bigger pot (the pot was much too small) but didn't separate it into three plants. I planted it all into one pot. Is it alright to leave it this way, or does each plant need to be in it's own pot?

I think it's fine for now. If you want to divide it, you certainly could do that as well.

Thank you--I guess I'll keep it this way for a while, at least. Don't want to shock it any more at this time. Thank you for reassuring me that it'll be fine potted this way, I appreciate it! Thank You!
