Hi everyone. What do you think that is?

Looks like some sort of crustacean to me -- but I'll bet it's an iris rhizome in murky water!

Hi Betty. You have the right guess. It is a rhizome for sure but which one and why in you opinion. In water also. Murky I have to look up for this word.

Hi C -- Murky means the water is not clear. It probably has algae in it? But I do not have a clue as to which cultivar it is. Could it be one of those walking irises we hear about? So sorry, but I don't know... Anyone else?

Sorry it is not a Louisiana. I give you a clue. This iris loves your country but has got a bad reputation up there.

Must be pseudacorus then. Looks different than our rhizomes here. Mine are fatter. That one looks like our Louisianas. is it the straight pseudacorus, C.? Not invasive for you?

Ys Polly it is the rhizome of a pseudacorus. I will take pictures of other ones and you wlll tell me if they are really fatter on your side.When I am weeding and cleaning it happens that some rhizomes of the water irises are broken. I wanted to show you the new roots which have been growing in the water. When I was living in Paris and taking care of the irises twice a year I had put some irises (many siberians and water irises) on a river side and some water irises I had put partly into the water went away witht the stream. As a piece of wodd was doing a barrage I got them back but I notices that they had been doing huge roots in the meantime (around six months in the water) so now I do not hesitate to put them into the water and they are doing fine. I plant them back whenever I can. I have been doing the some experience with daylilies which are been living for three years in the water, no ground at all and they are still there. Some very experienced people told me that was not possible but it is. It was just a glimpse about expriments I sometimes do in the garden.

I'm amazed that you grew daylilies in water. I grow my daylilies and Japanese irises right in the same bed, so the daylilies get tons of water, but I never thought growing them in standing water would work. Amazing.

It's truly amazing what some people will try. Who even thinks about these things? Obviously you do C! I am always amazed that someone thought to put a drug for gout on irises to increase ploidy.

Just a clump of daylilies Polly. The other ones are growing like yours. I had no idea that ploidy could be increased. Which kind of drug Polly?

C, here's a link to Jamie Gossard's website and his Conversions page. I think it's fascinating, but I know on the Daylily Cubit Cary Peterson says he has managed to kill everything he has tried to convert from diploids to tetrapolds so far, so it really must not be very easy to do.

Thank you Bety; I was just thinking about that. Hard to believe and you are telling me. Ath the end...You really made me laughing.
I will have a look to your link and hope to be able to understand this trick. Some were thinking they could turn iron into gold so increase diploidy...much easier may be..

Bob Hollingworth has been converting SIBs here in Michigan too. He told me it's a very dangerous chemical--he says it could affect our ploidy... I have a few old "before & after" pics from partially converted clumps in his garden around here somewhere (two different chromosome counts in the same plant)...

And another Before & After

Your second after took some chemicals too Brock and the link is not working anymore. In my opinion did not worth it.
Thank you for showing

Ah, but sometimes it really is worth it! Here is a link to a site that takes a look at blue eyed daylilies, and just about half-way through there are pictures of both the diploid LAVENDER BLUE BABY and the tetrapoloid conversion. So which do you prefer? I'd go with the tet conversion -- if I could afford it, that is!
