>Oops, my bad.  I meant asymbiotic embryo rescue.  Tiny little embryos in test tubes kind of thing.  I've never checked to see if it's been done in iris but I know it has been used extensively in lily hybridization.
There are two or three, or maybe more, growers germinating oncocyclus and regelia irises in an agar solution. It may be a better way to germinate the seeds, as opposed to the typical forced germination methods, especially when the endosperm has been damaged or has deteriorated, but the embryo is still healthy.
