    A couple of years ago I divided my Bc. Maikai 'Lea' in 3+ divisions.

    I am thinking about repotting 3 or them back together in a basket since I prefer having a large plant than several small ones.

    Would this cause any problems? any recommendations?

    TIA!

    The only problem would come if one of them happened to have become virused. If they all look good, go for it would be my suggestion.

    I agree. Shouldn't be a problem.

    If you show at an AOS sanctioned show you need to label it as a group of Bc. Maikai 'Lea' .

    Thank you Clark, I was wondering about that.

    As far as placing the plants in the basket during repoting, I'd think i would place the rhizomes going from the center -> out, right?

    Correct.
