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.

DISCLAIMER: This schedule is using horticultural names instead of scientific names until the scientific names become generally accepted, e.g., “Laelia purpurata” until it is generally accepted as “Cattleya purpurata”, etc.
