ginseng is up!

seems early, but maybe not. mine is just starting to sneak up through the leaves. pics are of a 20'x30' "woods" we made in our yard about 1988. its planted with everything from the woods, except the myrtle that somehow got there. its starting to take over, so I will have to deal with it. trees are white oaks, hemlock, spruce, white birch, locust, cherry ect. it really has filled in nice over the years.

Been noticing it's WAY up.

positive, first picture, just coming up. looks like a 2 prong and a first year plant so far. both on the DB and the SC. also in the "woods" are: trilliums, false hellebore, skunk cabbage, stinging nettles, woods rue, meadow rue, jack-in-the-pulpit, blue and black cohosh, bloodroot, geraniums, may apples, solomon's seal, bur cucumber, mayflower and some I am forgetting. there is a 3 and 4 prong ginseng plant in there also, but they don't all always come up, it changes from year to year.

Easier said than done. Find a big woods that hasn't been logged in quite some time. Put on your walking boots and get on the shady side of the mountain. Stay away from conifers like hemlock and pine.

Thanks for the advice, guys. I'm in south central PA, so I have michaeux state forest nearby. I plan to go out today for reishi mushrooms so I'll take a look around.

I have read that it takes a lot of shade??? Also read that it grows very well under poplar trees? I have some that I planted 4 years ago and it is very slow growing.
