I am hoping that I will have one or two left to reproduce.  Yes I have crossed it with a number of things, and its prettiest seedling, an intense orchid self blooming right now shows the same tendency.  I will keep crossing until I get some that don't.  But surely it isn't all genetic.  Some people never have any of this problem.

    It's hard to believe that such a big pretty clump is trying to
self destruct itself. I don't know how to stop this, but I would
think there must be a way to encourage it to reproduce vegetatively.
Are you going to cross it with something? If not, maybe deadheading
would send it the right message?
Last year one of my iris tried to do this; but sometime late in the
season new increase appeared. After the bloom died, I fed it alot
of 'bulb food'. That might help.
