Japanese Iris Seed are EASY!—Part #2

Japanese Iris Seed are EASY!—Part #2

I forgot to mention this, but there are reasons why the Japanese iris seed are best soaked in the throne tank for two months. 1) The water is changed frequently so it keeps the seed fairly clean of bacteria. 2) There is an anti-germination substance on the outside of the seed that must be scratched off--gently. The movement of the water in the tank sloshes the seeds against each other so this happens naturally just as it would in nature. I do wish I could take credit for the throne tank idea, but I read about it on the iris website I got the germination instructions from. :)
