This is worth the 28 min to watch. It is cultivated Ap style , and the really intriguing part was how if the growth nodules are to far apart the growth was to fast and if they are to close it is to hot.
Which is a case for nutrient density control. I know Ryan and others have there systems split so they can control levels and I have been looking at the different mixes available for hydroponics to get an idea of the profiles needed for various plants.
This was just a neat spin off find of that.
Anyway have a good one and Australia is even mentioned near the end.

Wasabi is on my list of plants to have a serious crack at one day.

The guys is Tassie had some serious problems because a few years ago they couldn't get enough water because of the drought. Haven't heard anything from them in a while :think:

The monorail thing looked pretty cool :thumbright:

Me too. I missed out on ordering some from Diggers again this year. I'll have to find somewhere else that sells it, otherwise have to order in time next year. It's not cheap ($17.95 at Diggers), but if I can grow it successfully it'd be awesome, fresh wasabi can't be beaten.

You need a stand alone system for it. Water temp <15c air temp <25c.

Without climate control its not a goer even in the high country.

I was thinking if ever there was a use for a small indoor ornamental system that would be it

Yeah that's what I was thinking, it'd be too hard to do it outdoors unless you had a little tucked away microclimate you could work with, and even then it'd be difficult.

I've been wanting to grow it for a while now, I really do need to try it at some point!

Yeah, and grow trout fry in it out of season to help make it cost effective.

I'd love to grow wasabi.

Google let me down no seeds or plants for sale. There was one place but they are sold out. Time for a waiting game Evidently.

Things I gleamed from vid are low nitrates, high mineral content and even tho they said most of the flow comes from below there was still 2 small falls on the front of each terrace ( my guess is for aeration)

I think if you imagine the water quality the a sickly salmon needs and you are in the ball park.

World's slowest monorail!

I need one! :)

When I was in Japan I went on the worlds steepest railway. It was similar, but was a cable car driven thing. The carriage was a series of steps with seats on them.

It scared the solids out of me :)

Did I just coin a phrase? ...searching :)

Did they forget to mention in that video that those wasabi fields are downstream from rice fields? That means the water is high in potassium and phosphate. In other areas, they just throw 10-10-10 into the water.

It cant be as difficult as they say.

There is no place on earth except underground that has anything like stable year round temperatures.

I'm sure there are places that make better wasabi than others as suggested by the gaps between the leaf ridges, but I'd bet a few bucks on almost everything grown being better than anything that comes in a toothpaste tube.

I think they mentioned a price of 50$ for a premium ...thing... but I'm guessing there are a lot of 5$ bits that still rock.

keep in mind that some tuna sell for $750,000 but most dont.
