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. 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. Read the notes below the Plant Entry Classification Schedule.
Entries must be clean, healthy, pest-free, and dry. 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. The San Diego Cactus and Succulent Society will exercise due caution in safeguarding exhibits. However, SDCSS cannot assume responsibility for loss of property. 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.
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. To receive the CSSA Award, two or more educational displays must be entered. Judges, Club President, and Show Chairman will each award two Rosettes to their favorite plants.
Members may submit plants to an Auction to be held Sunday, June 3 at 2pm. Entries accepted until noon Sunday. Owners may donate their plants or chose to retain 70% of the sale price.
