Worldwide plant pod testing- Mibuna

Hi, Click & Growers!

About a while ago we recruited 5 of you to be our at home testers, agreeing to be the guinea pigs for new and up-and-coming plant pods we are considering launching! Our testers grow potential new plant pods around the world in different climates and locations with different light and temperature levels, helping us find the plants that can withstand any environmental conditions and be brought to all of you promising the highest yield and growth. With their help, we have tested and launched Rosemary, Dill, Black Pansy and Red Sweet Pepper. Also, Piri Piri Chili and Plain Parsley will be available soon!

Our five testers are now starting to test Mibuna - a Japanese leafy vegetable that has a refreshing sweet mustard flavor. Like most oriental greens, Mibuna can be eaten raw in salads or used in stir fries or soups. It is a fast growing salad green that can be harvested already in 3 weeks after planting as ‘cut and come again’, because single leaves can be harvested over a longer period of time.

Our testers post weekly updates with photos in our Gardeners forum so all of you can see and share any helpful tips and see what new plant we are testing! So, if you’re interested in staying up to date, check back!

Its Day 15 and this week i had to add the light extension. They are growing really fast.
The temperature here is around 25ºC. I dont know this plant exactly so it is already ready to eat ? The leaves look big and ready to but i dont have sure.

nice plants indeed. You may start harvesting largest leaves already. Just make sure you don’t cut off the whole plant or the growing point in the center.

I just returned from vacations, and its now day 24 and today i will add another extension to the light.
They are growing very fast and comparing to the internet it seems that the leaves should be straight, this is, not with wrinkles as they are. Should it be the lack of soil to grow?

That looks good! I would harvest it gradually it and not to raise the lamp. :wink:

Its Day 29, and they look pretty much the same.
I added the extension last week but I will remove it, if you think its best.

Hi all!
It’s almost day 30 thou my plants haven’t grown as much as the others…
They developed muck quicker than other test plants we used before (which I quite liked).
I’ve noticed they need quite a lot of water, I hope that with care and light they will grow stronger day by day
