A potted plant can be a house plant, greenhouse plant or one grown outside. It should be in a clean pot that is of a suitable size and colour to the plant. When the judge is scoring the potted plant, if all things are equal the judge will give preference to a plant that is rare, unusual or difficult to grow (BCCGC Judging Manual, 2016)
