Is there anyone out there who has tried growing ginseng? We have this question from someone on the forums about it, asking for input and for folks to share their experiences, especially if you've grown it to sell.
It seems that the kind of ginseng most in demand is wild simulated ginseng. This is a very unpredictable way to plant and harvest a crop and in fact, you wouldn't call it a crop at all. To grow wild simulated ginseng, you'd attempt to establish a stand of "wild" ginseng in the forest floor, seeding it in the habitat that it naturally uses. The ginseng would become naturalized to its environment, self-seed, and be perpetual.
If you've grown wild simulated ginseng, or any other kind, stop in and share your thoughts and experiences.Photo © Flickr user t4n14_phei
