TOPIC: Selling rootlets

Selling rootlets 2 years 4 months ago #34668

Hey, I have a wild sim. patch that I planted back in 2011 on my own property. Im thinking of thinning it out and selling some rootlets for replanting....I have a couple questions....
1. would they be considered 3 or 4 year old rootlets?
2. Are there any legal considerations to selling rootlets?
3.do I dig and sell them in the fall.
4. Is there any special treatment rootlets have to go through?
5 How do you peck fresh rootlets for shipping?
6. what's a fair price for 3-4 yr old rootlets?

I'm in Indiana if that matters. Thanks for your input.

One Sly..

I would think you would want to count the years of growth considering each full year of growing season (up the first spring... and then made it thru to fall - a 1 year old).

At the end of the second fall - 2 year old.

I don't know if that is officially how it is done but that makes sense to me.

I would think you would only want to harvest and sell rootlets in the fall after the next years bud spur had fully developed and the tops started to die back or turn yellow.

I do know that one of the seed suppliers that I buy from (who also sells rootlets) said he gives the rootlets a clorox solution bath similar to how you treat seed. It has been a few years but best I remember he said a 5% solution for 10 minutes or so.

When float testing stratified seed Scott recommended a 10% bleach solution for 10-12 minutes.

I looked thru Scotts book just now but could not find any recommendation on how to treat rootlets. It might be in there somewhere but I could not find it. I looked at every instance of the word bleach. Could be that he recommends something else, but I did not find it.

Good Luck on the rootlets !

If you do decide to sell any please let me know! Always looking for another place to get rootlets. I like trying seeds and rootlets from different regions. Thanks.

Indiana DNR Links...

I would contact them to see if there's a legal rootlet market for IN sourced plants.

Surely there wouldn't be any laws or regulations about selling extra rootlets, they would be from seeds bought and planted, needing to be thinned or would die anyway. I think some people confuse wild ginseng with cultivated ginseng. And if the government wants to say ginseng is ginseng, then why in the world would it be considered endangered? There are millions of ginseng plants, and millions of seeds planted every year.

Depends on the state law....
