Wasabi Grows in Pots Just Fine

Edymnion(7a)January 13, 2013

Last year I asked if anyone had any experience with growing Wasabi, apparently no one had.

I would just like to stop in and say that yes, you can grow wasabi in pots just fine.

The main plant is a little leggy right now due to being brought indoors for the past couple of weeks due to freezing weather (its back out now since its been warm and cloudy/rainy, and its been loving it).

As you can see, I've also been able to successfully divide it out into a couple of smaller plants as well.

I did lose one plant due to the heat last summer, but overall I find that as long as you're careful about the temperature ranges you put them in, these things will bounce back from a lot.

Just don't let 'em freeze, don't put them out in full sun, and don't let them sit out in 90+ degree weather (they definitely seem to prefer 50-60 degree weather though), and you can grow your own wasabi quite easily.

Thanks for posting. I had no luck with seeds so might try plants this time.

Interesting, I just bought some seeds myself. Thinking of growing it in a SWC. How many can fit in a 5 gallon bucket?

Just got 2 plants in mail. Any more info on growing them in or outdoors would be most appreciated. I am most concerned with how much and type of lighting they need.
