This is kind of a "two-fer." How small a piece of rhizome will live, and grow, and does rooting hormone work on iris. I'm using Fabian (historic), and a yellow NOID, historic. I cut off the side increases on Fabian, and cut the "growing "end off, then sliced the remaining chunk of rhizome into 3/8" slices( some may be thicker, or thinner...didn't use a ruler!) One batch was dusted with hormone, and the other was left alone. I did the same with the yellow, except I also( copying Jerry's experiment) just tossed 1 rhizome on top of the ground. I used no fertilizer, or alfalfa pellets. I didn't even water them yet, as the dirt,, was fairly damp. I'll water in a few days. The side increases were almost marble sized, and the "main" one almost golf ball size. ArlynThumb of 2013-07-01/crowrita1/8e27e2
