Pods on the interploid iris seedlings

Don't know for sure until I see how many seeds are inside, but at least they're making pods. Nine on the 'Honky Tonk Blues' X 'Astra Girl' seedling and one on the 'Pink Champagne' X 'Astra Girl' seedling. There might have been more but I was trying to intercross the two and I don't think that was working too well. So I switched to using pollen from a nearby 'Honky Tonk Blues' X aphylla 'Balascuta' seedling and that seemed to have worked much better.
