I use comet, 1 to 6 bleach spray and bacterial soap. All of them work 
in stopping bacterial rot. As far as efficiency I find little 
difference.  Not too long ago I posted a picture of Lorilee with a 
label system I use. Shortly after I discovered rot in both rhizomes. 
I dripped straight bacterial soap and then watered the larger 
rhizome. The smaller was too far gone. Sprayed the area with bleach 
spray. It is healthy and growing, but I have had trouble with 
Lorilee, second rot case since purchasing rhizomes.

Wimpy or not, it amazes me that iris have such persistence to root 
and grow. I separate, wash and disinfect iris under the shade of the 
old oak tree, sans yellow ribbon. Every year I find small irises, 
left over from washing, growing under the dense shade. Like most, I 
gripe about certain iris but in 98% of the cases I am happy with the 
irises and their growth and habit. To Mike and all hybridisers 
keep up the good work.
