Walking iris plantlets

kateanne(11)July 26, 2013

Is it possible to propagate a walking iris from a plantlet that is cut before rooting?
There are some pretty yellow ones at my work that have many many plantlets, and I would like to take some home. (I have permission from the groundskeeper to take cuttings of the plants)

If someone could come up with a way NOT to propagate walking Iris, I hope they will post it here - these are a menace in my yard!!!

Hah! I have heard that. I will be growing them in pots, I just have a concrete lanai, no real garden. But only a small portion on my lanai gets full sun where most of my plants are clustered right now, so am trying to collect plants that tolerate indirect light and shade.

Hi Kateanne, I started my walking iris from an unroofed plantlet. No trouble at all, just plant it in damp potting soil and keep it in a well-lit space, but no direct sun until it has good roots. Mine lives permanently in a pot.
