I recently purchased a Siberian Iris root and after asking for a lot of advice, planted it in a pot with a high-quality potting soil that is supposed to be slightly acidic. I even mixed some washed sand in so that it would not get soggy. After an acceptable amount of time, I began to see growth.
At some point, maybe about a week or so ago, it pretty much stopped growing and the leaves began to droop. One of them began to turn yellow and spiral and today, is even worse than before. I'm afraid I've done something wrong and am very sad that I'm not seeing flowers.
The pot has great drainage and is even on something that keeps it off the deck surface so that water can drain well.
I'm in zone 5b.
Can anyone please advise? Even if I don't get flowers this year, I'm hoping to be able to save the plant and replant it in the garden this fall.
Any and all advice will be more than welcome.
As of a few days ago:
I posted about this in the Iris forum, but haven't had any replies. I am very sad and really want to save this plant. I hope someone can help.
