  Last year at the AIS Convention in Dallas where scorch was so 
widespread, there was talk of it being spread by an insect.  I think 
that is a 'wife's' tale.  

 Anybody try Dial soap or an aspirin for rot this year?  Using the 
germicidal Dial was the 'talk of iris-talk' last winter, but I cannot 
remember anybody bragging on its 'miracle cure' ability during the 
rot season this spring.  No praise for the aspirin a day treatment 

 I couldn't tell that either did anything on the few plants I had 
with rot, but old Comet or bleach sure fixed them up.

 With the scorch treatments recommendid - burying the rhizomes or 
baking them on the cement drive, I had one buried alive to send up a 
new leaf, but it rotted before I could elevate it.  Kinda sad about 
the clump the scorch invaded.  It was RARE EDITION, which was an old 
timer here.  It is completely gone.  But, having scorch invade only 
one clump out of at least a thousand isn't so bad.
