Hello i have three maranatas two lime and one of the red ones. I was thinking in putting them all in a pot together and letting them grow mixed. Can i do that without hurting them? They are non stop putting new leaves and i dont want to stop their progress so i thought of waiting till they calmed down but luckily/unlucky they are very happy and puting new leaves all the time. So i cant catch a break. I thought about putting them in a pot like this( attached) not as deep but wide. They are all in a 4in pots but the lime marantas have few stems each cause they were mistreated. In technically they could be considered just one. What should i do

Your Marantas are apparently thriving and growing well so I would not recommend disturbing the roots unless you are very experienced. If you are eager to have them together in the same pot, you can leave them in their existing pots and put those pots together in a larger planter and cover the surface with Spanish moss. Very easy to do and it leaves the roots undisturbed.
