Mitsuba: does it grow in Hawaii?

Mitsuba likes cooler climates and indirect light. Can it be grown on the plantation home lanai?

Mitsuba (Cryptotaenia Japonica) is a popular herb in Japan, used in stir-fry, pasta, and to decorate the steamed custard dish of chawanmushi. I haven’t seen it grown in Hawaii; it does not tolerate heat well.

Still, it seems possible it could be grown indoors. Mitsuba is a shade plant and doesn’t like direct sun. Recently, I purchased a package from Baker Creek. If they grow, you’ll see them at August’s exchange. Right now, the seedlings seem to be doing well in the windowsill.
