Re: Planting indoors


Wanted everyone to know how the experiement of planting iris in the basement
for the winter is going.

Yesterday, Dream Lover bloomed!  What a thrill to have an iris in Illinois in
February.

It is the only iris that has sent up a bloom stalk.  The others are growing
and spreading leaves.  These iris were completely dormant in October when I
started them in pots in the basement under fluorescent lights.  The
temperature is about 65 degree F.  They seem to like being close to the bulbs.
Maybe for some warmth. Anyway, the ones closest to the lights have the most
growth.

East Peoria Il
Maybe 40 degrees today.

PS...I also did this with some daylillies.  They are growing but don't like
the pot situation very well!
