Re: HYB: LA Germination

According to the findings of Deno, supported by my own experience, the seeds
of water irises either require or respond very positively to light during
germination. Break apart the corky coating and sow them on the surface of the
soil or medium so that light can reach them. Keep them warm and moist but not
wet. I have had no problems germinating any with this method.
