So, my iris developed pods this year for the first time! I was so excited to see what would happen when the pods were ready to take off the plant. One day they were green and full looking, and the next they were brown and shriveled.

So I cut them off carefully, and was going to share them with a neighbor who also loves irises, but when I cut them open, there was.....nothing.....they were empty.

What did I do wrong? Did I wait too long? Has anyone else had this happen?

I was really looking forward to the "offspring" as I've heard that they can look totally different from the parent plant.

I know very little about growing irises from seed, hopefully someone with more knowledge will come along and answer your question.

Tried to google it for you and found this: "Many iris seeds take several months or even years to germinate, so don't discard the containers if they fail to sprout in two to three months."

:confused: Not sure it's worth the wait! ;)
