Completing Judging Slips............

I would like to remind every one to be extra careful when filling out your judging slips. Please print names of plants clearly, with names spelled correctly. If you are having a problem with any of the names please ask the Judging Chairman for help. Plants without parentage should be entered in the proper category as unnamed. Please continue to bring your blooming plants to share with all of the members. Sharing this great hobby with the membership is part of the joy of growing orchids.

Judging Categories:
Sometimes it is confusing where to put a display plant.  Here is some help.

 Is my cattleya alliance plant a Miniature or a Standard?
            Standard: Total height of plant greater than 12 inches excluding inflorescence.
            Miniature: Total height of plant 12 inches or less excluding inflorescence.

 Is my cymbidium plant a Miniature or a Standard?
            Standard: Flowers 3 inches or larger.
            Miniature: Flowers 3 inches or less.

 Is my phalaenopsis alliance plant a Miniature or a Standard?
            Standard:  Flower spike is greater than 10 inches in length.
            Miniature: Flower spike is 10 inches in length or less. 


Please check your plants for pests & viruses before you bring them to meetings.
 
We appreciate your willingness to share, but no one needs any mealy bugs, scale, aphids, etc.!  If you see any on plants brought in, please help the plant owner to identify the pest and then isolate the infested plant(s) from the others.  If you are not sure about the infestation, then check with another experienced member.
 

SGVOH Judging Guidelines

Members have been bringing lots of beautiful plants.  You should know you have two places the display your plants:

(1) If the plant has been owned for 6 months or more, the plant can be put on the Judging Display Tables. 

(2) If the plant has been owned for less than 6 months, it may be displayed on the New Arrivals Display Tables.  These plants will not be judged, but the owner will receive a raffle ticket for each plant displayed here.

Any plant that was awarded a Pot Stake should not be brought back for judging until it blooms again. 

Do you know . . . what genera and hybrids belong to the Cattleya Alliance (Laeliinae)? Here are a few with their abbreviations: Barkeria (Bark), Brassavola (B), Brassocattleya (Bc), Brassolaelia (Bl), Brassolaeliocattleya (Blc) Broughtonia (Bro), Cattleya (C), Cattleytonia (Ctna), Clarkeara (Clka), Diacrium (Diacm), Dialaelia (Dial), Encyclia (E), Epidendrum (Epi), Isabelia ((Isa), Iwanagaara (Iwan), Laelia (L), Laeliocattleya (Lc), Oerstedella (Oe), Otaara (Otr), Potinara (Pot), Rhyncholaelia (Rl), Shomburgkia (Schom), Sophrocattleya (Sc), Sophrolaeliocattleya (Slc), Sophronitis (S), Yamadaara (Yam)

Of course there are many more. You also may wish to know which are hybrids and what genera have been crossed to get the hybrid. One place to go on the web for this information is http://retirees.uwaterloo.ca/~jerry/orchids/index.html On that site, check out Names of Orchid Genera and their Hybrids and Intergeneric Orchid Genus Names. Each file can be downloaded in MS Word format, so you can have the information ready at hand. No computer? Go to your local library.
