I read only recently of this phenomenon in irises. Someone mentioned 
putting stalks in sand to get increase. I wonder are they talking about 
increase at the base of the stalk or higher up. My guess is that 
proliferations higher up the stalk would come from the point of 
branching. Are there any species iris that do this more commonly? 
I agree with you Walter, that it is best to cut the stalks rather than 
snapping them, having recently lost a few potential increase using the 
snap method.

Cheers, Jan Clark
