Wasabi Growing Trial — Day 6 Update

Six days since planting the wasabi (wasabia japonica), the new leaves are now visible. By evening, tiny leaf buds were noticed. Quite exciting to find the plants showing signs of growth.

In good fun, we have named our three wasabi plants: Moe, Larry, and Curly (after “The Three Stooges”).

Project background: a pond with a stream bed feature was installed underneath the patio in an attempt to recreate wasabi’s natural habitat. This is a project to learn weather wasabi can be grown in a desert climate. Los Angeles area / California / Zone 10b / USA.
