Checking out the 2 year olds... 9 years 3 months ago #19479

Hey Guys...

I went down to my 2 year old wild simulated plantings today and dug up a couple to check out the root development on a couple of my little 2 prongs.

Here is the first one...

Not real big but decent shape and some nice root hair.

One more that I checked out...

The top broke off the root on it... many of the tops are gone already and some are yellow.

I was not really expecting these to get real big - the wild seng in the same area around my home just does not get real big - hardly ever find a 4 prong.

Have any of you checked out your 2 year old roots ?

Just wondering how yours are doing compared to mine ?

Thanks

TN,
Great job on those 2 year olds. You can tell by lookinG at those root hairs that something is agreeing with their diet down deep in the soil. They're really going for it.
I don't know if you are planning to transplant those. They should really make some nice mature roots in about 8 years. Admirable work. That first one is a man root in the making.

Nice root hair. Same around here. Rarely see a four prong. i mean i dug a two prong not long ago to move it and it had a age of over 20 years. Long neck and a root not much bigger than a pea. Every once and a while I'll dig a nice one though. Just depends on the area its in i guess

It's nice to see them grow, yes? How tall are those tops?

Whitjr,

I would say that most of them are in the 5-7\" tall range.

That is what you can see above ground... but now after you dig them up they are a little taller since the stem goes down to the root top a inch or two deeper.

Thanks for the nice comments all !

I have been growing Gensing where I live for about 12 years and I have Patches ranging from seedlings to rather large 4 prongs,I transplanted most all of the two prongs and three prongs as well as 4 pronges, I have learned so much in the past 12 years of growing Gensing but I have a passion for preserving the Wild Gensing in my area I have seen so many times how people will just dig out an area of everything they find so with all the extra seeds I have I now go to the areas that were dug out and replant my one prongs and two prongs for future Gensing diggers as well as my two teenage sons to have a place to hunt.
