Buying Wasabi Plants in the USA
Buying Wasabi Plants in quantities less than commercial levels (3000 plus) has always been difficult and sometimes impossible.
At the moment there is one place where buying wasabi plants is possible and that is on eBay. There is someone in Long Beach California who is selling individual Wasabi plants.

This post is in response to a number of people who want to buy Wasabi plants, but do not want our minimum order of 3000 plants. 🙂
They certainly are not cheap at $35.00 each, but it might be just what a few people want to put some in their garden as a talking point. Maybe, if they can keep them alive long enough they might actually end up with home-grown fresh wasabi. 🙂
Here are what I found.
Maybe you want more than one to play with – here are a few more offerings.
How about 3 Expensive Wasabi plants?
Before you start rushing off buying wasabi plants you need to ask the seller the following questions.
- What species are the plants?
- How old are they?
- When were they transplanted?
- How are they being shipped since they need to be kept cool?
- What growing media are they in?
- What fertiliser have you been using and how much / how often applied?
If you are buying wasabi plants you need to ensure that they are healthy and will be couriered to you by Next Day delivery. The best day of the week to order these plants would be on a Sunday so they are shipped on the Monday by Next Day or Same Day courier. That way you should get them quickly and the first thing you need to do is give them a good drink of COLD water to revive them from their travels.
Good luck with Buying Wasabi Plants.
