Re: LA, SIB, JI switching problem

From: "R. Dennis Hager" <rdhager@dmv.com>

JI's can be stored in water for extended periods of time. Culture
instructions for new JI usually state that they should be soaked in
water for atleast 24 hours. One day has turned into 2 weeks for me on
several occasions with no ill effects. Be sure to change the water
occasionally. At this time of year, with another 8 weeks before the
first frost, I have JI that were not doing well, cleaned off all the old
dying roots, cut off all but 6" of foliage and given them a week or so
in the water. It gives the plant a chance to grow some before frost and
you can actually see the development of healthy new roots in the water.
Foliage continues to grow also. Just be sure to get the plants back in
the ground 4-6 weeks before first exptected frost.

Siberian irises can take a short dunking in water, maybe 2-3 days, but I
wouldn't push it past that.

Good luck.
