Re: Growing Ginseng

I recently purchased some Ginseng seeds, and am currently holding them in a dish i layered with cotton. I wish to grow them hydroponically, and was wondering if someone could suggest how it is that i could aeroponically grow them.

to be honest i'm not sure at all how it is that i should keep them till they do start growing,

and as well i have one ginseng root that is a year old that i got with the patch of seeds that i purchased, so i'm hoping someone will reply before i screw up and they die..

basically i was hoping ot grow the aeroponically, and was wondering if anyone could suggest what the best way of doing this might be

Re: Growing Ginseng

I have been doing a lot of research in regards to growing Ginseng in hydro, but have yet to see anyone do this. Has anyone here have any experience? Andrii any luck? If so, what system are you using and how are you handling the lumens ascpect for the Ginseng needs?

Re: Growing Ginseng

I know there isn't much info on growing ginseng hydroponically, but does anyone know how long it would take for a root to reach a maturity level as to be cultivatable. All the information ive gathered suggests that ginseng needs a fairly acidic ph (4.5 - 6.0) 70% shade, and calcium rich nutrients. Lime helps also. The only thing i havn't seen is how long it takes to mature.

Re: Growing Ginseng

I know of no one growing ginseng hydroponically successfully. I would suggest that the more artificial the growing environment, the less value of the ginseng in terms of price or medicinal value.

Re: Growing Ginseng

i am currently trying to grow some in soil. also curious to see if lighting can be replicated. Perhaps merely giving it both indirect exposure to multiple windows and an adequate distance from a bright 400+ HPS light. i think it should be grown in soil... i know this is a hydro forum but we are on the same page

Re: Growing Ginseng

Hello, What would the light time be for ginseng if grown indoors? Would it be 12/12 lighting time? or 16/8? or what?

In 1999-2001 I worked with Professor Hoon Park at the Institute ofGinseng and Tobacco (South Korea) on
and got better results than pure hydroponics

Re: Growing Ginseng

I cannot imagine that growing ginseng would be cost effective in any way. if it takes three years to cultivate, plus needs to be grown in shade. you would be wasting more time and money to produce per pound than you could possibly make on any indoor harvest. it just doesn't seem like a logical indoor crop to me!

Re: Growing Ginseng

If you would like to follow our success, or failure, growing American ginseng in California using two advanced food growing systems outdoors have a look at : Its called the Ginseng California Growing Challenge and both seeds and rootlets have been planted in a hydroponic Veggie Garden2go and an aeroponic vertical Tower Garden growing system. Progress will be posted there when there is something to report. Despite the many challenges, we think its possible. Many of the roots have already started to grow, even as the weather cools.
