when im out hunting ginseng...it seems like the ones i find in the hardest dryest parts of the ground produce much bigger roots... just wondering if there was anyone else thats noticed this?

It seems like they might be longer because that root is seeking out moisture, but I've not noticed roots being any bigger around. I think good soil and old age and the right amount of light produce big roots.

Here in Kentucky we have had more rain during the summer than normal this year, after two very dry years. Ginseng that grows in dry areas in times of drought dies back very early in July well before ginseng season begins. It is not found and dug so it increases in age and size plus a lot of people do not look in dry areas for ginseng which also helps. This year the dry areas have had plenty of rain and ginseng still has its leaves here in my area.

Somerset you are rite I am also in Ky and I love dry ridges where I know seng grows well in the holers surrounding them on a wet year and I have found some of my best plants there,just not as often as the moisture areas,but when you do get that goodie it is worth all the times when it is not there,so keep looking em :)
