Identifying a Houseplant

I got a new potted planter at Lowe's and it has an orchid and another plant in it. It also has a very small plant in it that I can't seem to find on the web. The little plant in the center of the photo is the one I have no idea of what kind of plant it is. Should I seperate the three plants as well? There is no drainage hole in the bottom of the flower pot. Please help.

I cannot tell what the plant is, but I believe that you should just leave the three together. If they came that way, it must be for a reason.

Orchids are by nature tropical plants, so they require a lot of moisture but not necessarily a lot of direct light. I would bet anything that its companion plants have the same needs/habits. The non-draining pot seems to indicate that these are moisture-loving plants who also thrive in crowded environments.

Thank you but how I do water them and give them plant food without a hole in the bottom of the pot?

You can either poke holes in the bottom of this pot or repot it in another container.

If you are asking about the plant with the red center, I believe it's a bromeliad and is kin to the pineapple.

Thank you but I'm also referring to the little one with the red threw the center of the leaves not sure what it is. When I get home I'll post a picture of it.

It is a nice little bromeliad. They generally require conditions similar to the orchid.

maybe you can post a picture of the smaller plant as just about all we can see is the orchid and the bromeliad.
I have a pink bromeliad similar to yours so it is possible yours may be the same kind.

The tall one with pink flower looking leaves is a Bromeliad, variety called Guzmania lingulata. The small one is a Croton.
