Earlybird sales ends Monday at midnight folks.....after that the price is going up $20/lb.

I don't know the area at all, but would suspect that it might well have been dug out many years ago and never replanted.  It sounds like good area you describe, however.  Good luck in your search.

I love fishing, since I heard about ginseng and saw a pic of it I realized I've seen this plant thousands of times in my life.  It is a very familiar plant, I remember seeing it when I was a kid in the woods.  It was everywhere.  I've hiked a total of about 20 hrs the past week deep into the cook county forest preserves to find the ginseng.  I can't find a single ginseng plant anywhere.  I'm pretty savy on soil and growing conditions, I've recognized nearly every single companion plant, walked many northern facing slope........I have literally recognized all the companion plants and trees associated with ginseng.  Does anyone know what's going on? Is it all poached?  Or could it be it just doesn't grow here?  Any response from someone that knows the area would be great.

Thank you Sir.

I'm having trouble with email from my main site (castleen.com) which is only used for email.  But this site is a subdomain of that site.  We we need to migrate the sites to a different server.  I'm being told the forum might 'break' for a bit until I get things sorted out.  So hang on and buckle up!

I think you would be better off time-wise to just wait until you can take pics of the plants this summer.  That is a much better way to tell what I plant is.

It's no problem I appreciate your input on it, would it help if I took more pictures of the roots? Or would it be better to just wait and get you pictures of the plants next summer?

Ginseng roots are pretty distinctive.  There are a couple roots I've seen which look similar to the one you have and many which look similar to the other.  Just no way to tell from those pictures for sure.  Sorry.
