	It would mean more if you indicate what type of iris you are
thinking of--because some types do best with a regular water supply.
Possibly you are writing of Dutch Iris, as that has been the topic
of discussion lately, but your message doesn't make it clear.
Consider Japanese iris, Iris pseudocorus, etc.  Others like lots of water 
during growth, and must have a dry period during their rest period.
When the water is present may well be as important as the amount.
