Dual pot for orchids?

Hello everyone. Due to the fact that I am going to make a small shopping, I am surfing the Internet looking for new seeds and accessories for my garden and also for my orchids. I came across dual pot for orchids (here: LINK ) and I wanted to ask you if it is safe to put two orchids here. I read many various articles about it and there are many opponents to this idea. Some people even say that such pot can cause roots rot. What do you think?

Hello. I would not recommend putting two orchids in the same pot. Your orchids would soon be fighting for space. On the topic of duel core pots, it's a matter of preference and growing conditions. I've used them and don't prefer them. I found for my conditions they add no benefit. I still use the clear pots for a few of my orchids but get the best out if plain terracotta pots particularly for my phals.

I have agree w/-k- The glass pot/container shown has no drainage and is for display only.
