Definition of increases

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Margiempv:

To multiply, to reproduce.

The act of increasing.

In the iris world, it is the new growth(s) which begin to form on an iris rhizome. These growths will eventually sprout sword-like leaves, which continue to grow until it becomes an independent iris plant, only to repeat the cycle.

Increases are young plants attached to the mother rhizome.
