Previous picture is a double-stem ginseng. This particular plant produced the biggest berry cluster I have ever seen two years ago - 51 berries. Woods are starting to dry out. Looks like ginseng will try to set a good crop of berries this year.

Planted some seeds close to rock as an experiment. Good thing because 180 seeds planted downslope all failed to germinate.

Overhead rock.
So that is not more than 15 seedlings from 200 seeds planted. Growing ginseng is not easy !

Archon...

Nice Pics. Some good looking 3 leafers. And you are right it is not easy.

Actually getting 3 leafers to come up is pretty easy for me, but getting them to live 3-4-5 years or more that is a different story.
I have had really good germination rates, and plots full of 3 leafers (first year), but they slowly dwindle down over the years, to where you have about 1/3 to 1/4 of the originals left. All of my spots where I planted large beds and planted them thickly (3-4 seeds per sq ft) have done that.

Places where I planted smaller numbers and spread them out more have done better.

On that first pic above... (two 4's right together) could you tell if that is a double top (two tops off one root ?) If so, that may be a very nice root there.
Be sure and post a pic of that root this fall if you do get to harvest it.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I do not usually harvest giant-sized ginseng. Figure they are more valuable for the seeds they produce. If someone were to pay me for all the work I have done planting ginseng seeds, I would be owed about $ 15,000 dollars. I will post more pictures later when I visit my other sites.
