Here is a Utube Video that gives a quick intro. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jRvotqV2ZQ

And this webpage will tell you everything you need to know...and a lot more. There is so much detail you might want to skip a lot of it. About half way down the page is a section called How To Cross that gives you one hybridizer's (Don Spoon's ) method for making crosses.

There are lot's of Utube videos and websites if you do a little searching. It's really pretty easy. Smiling

Good Luck and Welcome to ATP's Iris Forum. Come back and visit....you can learn a lot from these people!!! Welcome!

@Cuzz4short.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
