Plant Registration

Plant Registration and Exhibitor Identification

1) Fill out the plant registration spreadsheet and the exhibitor identification spreadsheet.

  • If bringing plants for the IOS display, you only need to fill out the plant registration spreadsheet with the name of your plant and the class.
  • If your are an exhibitor, prior to the show you will receive an exhibit number from the show chair.  This is your exhibit ID.  Each member of your exhibit should be identified by a letter.  For example, if you are exhibit 6, then as the first exhibitor in your exhibit, you would be 6A.
2) Send the registration spreadsheets to the Lois Cinert at [email protected] and Diane Mulkerin at [email protected].

Reference Documents

The Illinois Orchid Society Spring Show is an American Orchid Society judged show. The following modified entry rules and schedule are available:

The Show Schedule will tell you the proper classes in which to enter your plants, art work, exhibits, etc..   For the more common genera this should be the only reference document you'll need to register your plants, but if you are registering unusual or unfamiliar plants whose alliances you don't know you will have to look them up to determine what classes they belong in. You can do this by consulting the list of MAOC Class Codes and the Intergeneric Hybrid Makeup list.  Some genera are assigned to more than one class code based on flower color or hybridization. When multiple class codes are indicated, go back to the IOS Entry Schedule above to pick the appropriate one. The most recent MAOC Class Codes and Intergeneric Hybrid Makeup list are available at the Mid-America Orchid Congress website.
