Show Rules for Displays/Exhibits & Plant Registration

Only plants registered for judging will be eligible for judging and awards. This includes Best of Show, Best of Sections, and all awards for individual plants. Exhibitors must have grown all plants for at least 180 days prior to the show. If a plant is found to be infected or infested with disease or pests, it will be isolated and its exhibitor will be asked to clean it or remove it from the Show at the discretion of the Judging Chair.

JUDGING CLASSES: OPEN & AMATEUR divisions are judged separately for each Section and Class.

  • OPEN – The Open division is open to all exhibitors, both Commercial and Amateur. Anyone who has a California Nurseryman’s License or Resale Permit for cut flowers, orchid plants, or supplies can only enter in the Open Division. Amateurs who wish to compete with Commercial growers may enter in the Open division.
  • AMATEUR – One who grows orchid plants primarily for pleasure and hobby and does not have a California Nurseryman’s License or a Resale Permit for cut flowers, orchid plants, or supplies. Only amateurs may enter in the Amateur category. However, an amateur grower may also enter in the Open category.

AWARDS & TROPHIES
Some awards and trophies are designated either Open or Amateur. The descriptions for Open and Amateur described in the above paragraph apply. In some cases, there is only one award for a particular quality plant award. All registered plants (Open and Amateur) will be eligible for any trophy that has no Open or Amateur designation.
