Re: Cult: TBS: Sulfur

Pat, I put dial soap on them straight out of the refill bottle at the first sign of rot in June.  It seemed to help for awhile, but after a hot July rain they were rotting again.  When I dug my Celebration Song, rescued two rhizomes, and stuck them in a bucket of Clorox solution, the bucket filled with suds from Dial soap.  I have stopped some rot since then with Comet cleanser.

  Francelle, have you tried pouring 1 tbsp. of liquid Dial antibacterial or 
  Softsoap anti.
  per gallon of water on the rotters before they start to rot?   Last year I 
  lost all but
  one rhizome of a clump of a really nice iris.   I treated it and a few others 
  I thought
  might do the same.   All have been fine so far.   One year isn't much of a 
  test, but I'll
  keep doing it as long as it seems to work.
                                                                   Pat in Dallas
