judged. Entries may be rearranged for the good of the show.
The committee has the right to reject plants that are not pest free. Props, figurines, etc. may only be used in Planters and Arrangements. However, rocks or other
natural objects are permissible in any category if they are an incidental adjunct to the plant; i.e., adding stability or artistic balance.
Cristate, variegated and monstrous plants should be placed only in their specific categories.
They should contain no more than 30% of normal growth. Variegated Gasteria and Sanseviera may be shown in either.

Judges Choice (each judge will award a rosette to the plant of their choice)
The criteria by which plants are judged is not precisely prescribed and there is a certain degree of subjectivity involved. The judges are recognized authorities and experienced growers. However, there is always some disagreement with the results of judging. Exhibitors (both winners and non-winners) should bear in mind that a different group of judges (or the same judges on a different day) might come to different conclusions. If your plants look just the way you want them to look, that should be satisfaction enough even if they do not receive awards. Judges take into account many characteristics of the entry and will typically use the percentages below:
Size, maturity and difficulty of culture…….
Condition, size, and difficulty are considered in relationship to each other. For example, an old
plant with a few blemishes would probably be rated higher than a virtually flawless seedling.
A small plant that is difficult to grow might be judged better than a larger one that is relatively
Staging includes many things that are involved in presenting plants so they look their best –
pot, top dressing, position of the plant in the pot, etc. This is a matter of individual taste, but
conservative pots and subdued top dressing are generally preferred. Staging and grooming are
a real art by which even a fairly ordinary plant can sometimes be made to look special.
Nomenclature means accurate identification on the entry cards. Where differences of opinion
exist between botanists regarding the “correct” name of a plant, or where revisions are recent
and not generally available, nomenclature will not affect judging. TROPHIES
