Shirley  --  I've never noticed any loss of a plant that had several pods.  Attached are photos of the bases of the two plants whose multiple-pod stalks I posted.  The first is Hazelnut Delight.  The stalk, which has been removed, was from the center of the clump between the two major fans.  As you can see, the plant is flourishing.  The second is Stealth Fighter.  The stalk is on the left piece (toward the camera) of the mother rhizome shown and has no increase on it.  It may or may not produce anything once I have snapped off the stalk, but I'm not concerned, because the other piece and the plant as a whole are sound and vigorous.   As can be seen, another spent stalk was snapped off the mother rhizome.  As it happens, this clump was the stellar performer here this year, blooming in late April, then sending up two more fully-flowering stalks more than a month later.
Is it possible that your die-outs occurred after pods were set on single-rhizome plants that had no increase to begin with?  In such a case, the plant may have been heading for oblivion, pods or not.  If the plant has increase and appears healthy, I'd encourage you to set all the pods that you can. --  Griff

Hello all,
After seeing the 3 pods (huge and healthy) I have a question.  I would like to know if the rest of you or any of you have the same problem that I do when I make 3 crosses on 1 plant.  It seems here in St. Louis the plant does not give but 1 increase if any if I have 3 pods.Some plants have slowly just died after I harvested the pods.  I  now only make 1 or 2 crosses per stalk. What have the rest of you noticed on your plants?

Subject: [iris-photos] HYB: pod report

A while ago, when we were discussing pods, I posted this photo and guessed which of the 3 pods on the left would have seeds.  (All are bee pods.  The pod on the right is a planned cross.)  I guessed that the bottom pod might, that the middle pod would not, and that the top one would.
All three were empty.
I'd have lost money betting on that top bee pod, which was as round and smooth as the planned pod below it on the right.  So, as I said before, you can't be sure till you open them up.  --  Griff
