The show is open to anyone who grows succulent plants. There is no limit to the number of entries per class or the number of classes entered, though no entry can be entered in more than one class. All property shall be marked with the owner’s name, not visible to the judges.
Entries must be clean, healthy, pest-free, and dry. The exhibitor must have grown the plant for at least six months.
All entries must have properly filled entry cards and must be entered in the appropriate Division and Class to be eligible for awards. Exhibitors are responsible for placing these items with their entries.
For the best plant grown from seed, the exhibitors must have raised the plant themselves. Plants may be species or hybrids. Hybrids may be exhibited in the class of either parent. Grafted plants will be accepted in any class, though awards for grafts will be selected from Division IV. See 2019 Plant Classes.
Remove Plant Name Tags in pots (except for collections and displays).
Awards must remain with exhibits until the close of the show. Classes with few entries may be combined. The show committee reserves the right to reject plants or exhibits and to readjust entries for the good of the show. Show hours must be followed.
Entries are judged against perfection. The judges’ decisions are final. In the case of disputes and/or ties, the Show Chair(s) or if the Chair's plants are involved, the Head Clerk, shall make the final decision.
SDCSS will exercise due caution in safeguarding exhibits, however, cannot assume responsibility for damage to, or loss of, plants and property.
NOVICE (Fewer than 10 Blue Ribbons won in judged competition. Use GREEN entry cards)
INTERMEDIATE (10+ Blue Ribbons won in judged competition. Use YELLOW entry cards)
OPEN (Vendors and anyone else. Use BLUE entry cards)
NON-COMPETITIVE (Open to anyone who wants to show off a plant. Use WHITE entry cards)
Trophies and Plaques are perpetual, except the educational and novice awards.
Winners will receive a hand-crafted pot and a certificate suitable for framing.
First, second and third place ribbons will be awarded in each class; however, should the judges feel that a first, second, or third place is not merited, no awards will be given.

Judges, Club President, and Show Chairman will each award two Rosettes to their favorite plants.
