TOPIC: 2 year old ginseng plants?

2 year old ginseng plants? 7 years 5 months ago #3971

Long time lurker first time poster.

Does anyone have any pictures of 2 year old Ginseng plants?

I have read they should have 5 leaves, but can also have 3 leaves like they do when they are 1 year old?

I am going to Wisconsin to check out my plantings from 2008 and just want to know what I should be looking for.

Any help/pictures would be great.


Thanks!

Thanks for the response.

I will really have to take a close look at my planting rows to spot 3 different types of plants.

You should have quite a mixed bag. I have alot of 3,4, and 5 leafed 1 prongs as well as some 2 prongs. Believe it or not I also have some 3 prongs with 3 leaves on each prong, but the vast majority will be 1 prongs and small 2 prongs.

Well once you get an eye for spotting the leaves then its all good. Your eye will train quickly. I used to have trouble seeing it in patches or in the wild but now its easy peasy. The plants whether they are young or old single pronged or 4 just have that same basic look.
Hey general thats pretty sweet to hear you have tiny 3 prongers! I was noticing that a smidge where I planted but figured it was pre-existing \"seng\". I still think the ones I have are but I guess I could always peek at the root and check the years to see.
