Iris intensive care

Repeating a prior post, here is the remaining rhizome from Iris "Diety", which developed a rot disease and the leaves rotted off, leading me to cut off the growth end, wash, dry, treat with 10% bleach, dry, then replant. Already growing - I'm impressed!
Little baby sprouts. Won't bloom next year, but really is growing.
found this start in dry grass by tree trunk. I recall they are a mini dwarf variety, blue or yellow. Pulled out, cleaned the tiny rhizome, planted in flowerpot. I don't "need" it, but I'm curious to see if it grows.
