TOPIC: Two-Year-Old Roots and One Root w/Two Growth Buds

Two-Year-Old Roots and One Root w/Two Growth Buds 3 months 2 weeks ago #40328

Since its getting towards the end of ginseng's growing season I decided to dig up a few plants growing in my test plots. They are two-year-old wild-sim plants and I was just curious as to what others thought of the root development. I am still fairly new to this and wanted more experienced growers/diggers to tell me if they look as if they are growing correctly. I also noticed that this plant had heaved out of the soil for some reason. The growth bud(s) for next year were exposed and to me it appears as if there are two of them on one root. Is this possible? Thanks in advance.

They look good to me. Yes it's possible for them to grow more than one top.

Good looking young plants. They look to be starting off well.

Looking good for 2 year olds.

I would say that it is a little unusual for one so young to develop two buds and have two tops next year, but it sure looks like you are getting that. Probably a sign that it is happy growing in your location.

In wild seng, it is usually older roots with longer root necks that have multiple buds and tops.

I have two down in my seed producing bed that have double tops (both double 3 prong tops).

I have seen and dug one wild root with 3 - 3 prong tops myself.

Below is a youtube of Billy with a huge root with 3 big old 4 prong tops.



PS... I got out and made the rounds this Saturday to my seed bed, and my wild sim patches and planted 150 or so red berries. Not bad for my first picking of the year.

Saw a lot of tops that had been browsed, dang deer. I will be making jerky out of some of those later this fall.
