Re: New Rebloom Terrible seedling.

Boy, is this ever the truth. If I could just take a couple of months
off I would love to follow some of the experts around and watch them
hybridize. After that I would like to watch/help with the digging and
shipping. Just trying to dig and store my iris for the iris society
sale tells me I am doing something wrong. I would love to hear how this
is handled without losing, confusing or molding the iris. Normally when
I dig I trim, clean and wash my iris. Then I store them in paper bags
until the day of our sale. The ones I am keeping for myself may stay in
these paper bags for a couple of weeks. This year some of them molded
before I got them planted. I gave them a clorox rinse and they are
doing fine but I don't know how to keep them from molding in the first
Earlier this year someone asked about clorox soaks. I remember them
getting a good answer but it was inadvertantly deleted. I would like to
1. How long do they need to soak in the clorox/water mix.
2. Is 10% clorox about right?
3. Do you need to rinse with clean water afterward?
Thanks in advance for your help.
