Iris meristems?

From: "Robert Dickow" <dickow@uidaho.edu>

I was wondering if anybody knew if meristem cloning is
done to any extent in the iris trade? This method of
propagation is what makes really rare (e.g. $250,000)
orchids available to hobbyists. Maybe irises can be
produced fairly quickly without doing this, or maybe
the market is too small, or maybe it can't be done
for technical (biological) reasons.

I haven't been doing irises seriously long enough to
know what the scene is in the cloning of them.

Any comments?
