[iris] HYB: CULT: Seed:mold



Mold does not hurt the seed, but it can be avoided by shaking the seed each day until they are dry.? I put the seed in a sealed envelope for easy shaking.???It also helps to simply turn the envelope upside down each day, since gravity will pull most of the seed downward.? I put the field number on the envelope.? Once all are dry I move them into a fresh envelope with field number, permanent number & number of seed. ?I developed this routine after dumping seed a couple of times.? 

<mold and the seeds..?>
It's getting cold enough to plant this year's seed outdoors.? Can the world handle more good reblooming yellow irises?? <smile>? I've 133 seed from (Harvest of Memories x Gratuity) X (Rio x Matrix)!?

Copper Sulfate or any form of copper is deadly to plant life. It would kill the mold and the seeds..?
