TOPIC: Is It Ginseng

Is It Ginseng 2 years 5 months ago #35772

Hi everyone,

Last fall was my first attempt at growing ginseng. The plants in the images below are growing where I planted the ginseng seeds. Would you be able to tell me if these are first year ginseng plants?

Thank you!
Doug

That's ginseng? Damn. Maybe I passed some on my hike a few days ago... I would think the wild seng would be at a later stage right now though.

This is from up Wisconsin. It's been awful wet and cool here. When I went out and looked about 6 weeks ago nothing was up. I thought maybe nothing had taken. Nice to see it ended up coming up even with the crappy weather.

Looking good Doug.

VAHunter... that is what ginseng looks like the first spring that it comes up.

Mature plants look quite different, with multiple prongs (3 or 4 usually) and 5 leaf sets per prong (3 large leaves that point out from the center, and 2 smaller leaves that point towards the center). with a flower spike / berry pod in the center.

A mature plant may be 12-24\" tall or larger in excellent conditions.

First spring plants are small like that (2-3\" tall), single stem, no prongs, and usually only 3 leaves.

We commonly call em 3 leafers.
