Well the rules are that staging is 25% of the points awarded. I'm happy to forgo them. I am not willing to disturb a plant like that to re-pot for the sake of the pot-nazis. Maybe I should have left it at home to keep them happy?


One problem with over-emphasis on staging is that it discourages beginners and young people from entering plants. Ceramic show pots can be quite expensive.


I am thinking of sponsoring trophies for "Best Plant in a Plastic Pot" at some of my local shows to try and get rid of these non-horticultural tendencies.
