Re: HYB: Louisiana sprouts

Well, as I have never grown a Louisiana Iris I'm not sure that I'd be much help.  Although, I have an idea.

Try growing it in a large garden tub like some do cannas or use to put goldfish on their patios.  This may also force you to select on the most vigorous ones to keep.

Maybe also put them in large pots and build a trench that you can fill with water and last a few days before it dries out too much.
