New to the forum, and new to ginseng in general... really enjoy learning from y'all. Walked over 7 acres of wooded land to see if ginseng would grow or currently is growing. Trees are mainly oak and maple, once in a while a pine or walnut, east facing slope, but the soil is mostly clay once you go down past 2\". I'll give it a shot anyway and put some seed in. As far currently growing...this is the one promising picture, is this the real deal or are there look-a-like plants that could fool me? Thanks.
A picture can be attached to any forum post by replying to a topic (or starting a new topic), and then clicking on the \"Select Image file to attach\" below the main message body text field.
Only a single picture file can be attached to a single post. This will depend on the file size as well as the width and length of the picture, maximum of 5 Megabyte in file size and 800 by 800 pixels in width and length. For more files, just make another post.
If you do not know the size of the picture, it is recommended to use picture resizing programs that available on the web for free of charge or you may do it by yourself on your computer.
All the pictures posted on our ginseng forums are hosted directly by wildgrown.com. We do not recommend hosting pictures from other websites due to possibility of missing pictures later on(they do delete old files but we don't!).

It is a little hard to tell from the pic but the plants you show are either Raspberry or Blackberry and not Ginseng. Ginseng has a similar leaf structure (i.e. 3 to 5 leaves per prong) but they usually always grow from the same central fork.
This is a 4 (four) prong with four branches or stems with leaves coming off the main stem.
