Just found out my roth was awarded an AM (81 points). It was awarded by photos because of COVID although one judge saw it in person and did the measurements. Judging from photos can be difficult. But the judge who saw it in person believed it was worth an AM and it is definitely better than my other roth that got an AM award a few years ago. So I think an AM sounds right.

Normally, you may have 5 judges deciding on whether a plant is worthy of an award. I believe when they judged my orchid, photos were sent to all judges in NSW, so there could have been as many as 20 or more judges pointing my plant. I am told even when COVID restrictions are lifted, they will continue to allow plants to judged from photos. This is great news for me as there are not enough judges in my region to have plants judged. Up until now, I have been totally reliant on having plants judged at our Spring show when we have judges come in from interstate. Now I can have my plants judged at anytime of the year. Next week I will put another one of my plants up for judging.

Congrats… it’s about time virtual judging happened. The process is interesting. At least one accredited judge must see and measure the plant. Then take good pics. And then present and discuss to the team. Perfect …maybe AOS might do so here 🤞.

Love seeing the whole plant. What a beauty. It looks like it has the jungle leaves, none of the compactness that seems to have become prevalent. I love it and want it.
