If you were in the Eastern US, I would say you have some horse chestnut saplings. Lord knows what similar looking species you have down there! PLEASE POST THE PICS! I've been lurking for a while now and this made me start posting!

Clyde,
I can't take any credit for being a long time buyer or seller, but I've been around ginseng a little and that sure does not look like Ginseng Quinquefolius. It also looks like what ever you are photographing is standing in water. That's a sure sign that it's not ginseng. If you are completely sincere and it is just a mistake of what you have, it is understandable. You have provided some entertainment at a slow time of the year.

Clyde...

Sorry but (as expected)... that is not (Panax Ginseng) Oriental or Asian Ginseng... Or (Panax quinquefolius) American Ginseng.

Not real sure what that is...

Not a bad looking plant though. No idea if it is worth anything though.

But still it looks absolutely nothing like eithher Asian or American Ginseng.

Let us know if you find out what it is.

Clyde- while I found your post stimulating... the photo you posted... I'll agree with the others here that this is not 'sang at all.

In the interests of fairness, I did research the medicinal plants of the Philipines. there are over 1000 listed, however our favorite plant is not on that listing.

You say that you planted from wild stock. where did you get your wild stock? From here in USA?

You photo looks like the Phillipine native plant Santan... from the google image searcgh I did.

TNHunter... Love the joke!

Real turkey... definately a fake picture... my cut and paste is quite obvious.

There is some software out there that you can do that nicely with - I just don't have it.

You know if there were 6' tall ginseng plants... we would probably walk right by them and not notice them.

We are looking for something much smaller.

I have nearly passed up nice tall 3 and 4 prongs before because I am not looking for something that size.

Many years ago.. back in the early 80's... the tallest plant I can ever remember digging.

I found a nice patch of 3 and 4 prongs - some nice ones.

And as I started to dig one of the 4 prongs I went to break a bush out of the way that was towering over it.. and then I realized it was actually a monster 4 prong. The stem on that plant would not fit thru the button hole on my shirt. It was a nice one.
