Wasabi loves damp shady conditions. Plant out in a damp shady position - can be grown in a large pot or even as a striking looking houseplant if placed in a cool shady position and kept damp.
Once the plant has established (in a few weeks) you can selectively harvest the leaves to add some spice to salads. The rhizomes from which 'wasabi paste' is made usually take 12-18 months to grow.
