Planting and care

Understand the wild-simulated ginseng growing method. This method mimics the plant s natural environment. While ginseng grown this way typically takes eight years to mature, the end result is much more valuable than field-cultivated ginseng due to its color and shape. You may attempt to alter this process by using artificial shade or tilling the soil, but then you will be growing woods-grown ginseng, which may grow into a different, less valuable shape.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade
Soil: well-drained soil
Water: Medium
Temperature: 50F.
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Ginseng American

  • Once the plants have matured, they will produce a cluster of red berries with the seed in the center.
  • Pick these in the fall if you want to harvest the seeds for planting or selling.
  • Keep in mind they will need to be stratified as described under Preparing the Seeds.
