Tent Talk #5

The return of Tent Talk.  2016 was a busy year. 

We'd like to share some of the fun side projects R&D did in 2016.  

We automated our propagation rack's watering system. Our racks are now fully self watering. For more on how to take your seedling rack to the next level check out this post.

Few realize that the Wasabi served in most Japanese restaurants is actually horseradish and food coloring. The true Wasabi grows along cold mountain streams, takes over two years to reach maturity and is among the most difficult crops to grow commercially. The difficulty in cultivation translates to the pricetag. Premium Wasabi rhizome sells for $45 a pound in North America. Check out our custom water chilled EuroGrower hydroponic system, where several small Wasabi starts have taken residence. More to come.

The Carolina Reaper is currently the world's hottest pepper, clocking in at over one million Scoville units. R&D are now the proud parents of some seriously hot little pepper plants.
