    Well littleone ginseng grows in a lot of places. usually in shady areas usually on hillsides and in very well soil. the season start on sept. 1 to dec. 31 the laws are very strict and reading over them will help. also it depends on where you are for the season but this seems to be the general. lately the prices have been in the 300 - 550 dollar range dry.
    but i have seen it up to almost 1000 dollars dry.

    Around my area it grows on the sides of the mountains and hills. The harvest season is late August into September. Around here, it usually grows in loose rocky soil. You can plant and grow ginsing but "tame" ginsing doesn't sell as high as wild ginsing. It does take practice to be able to recognize wild ginsing.

    yeah As BIGmoe says you should look up the plant and study it maybe even take the picture with you next year because once i first started when i was 12 i got t confused with many plants mainly small buckeye trees but once you find the first one it is easy to spot if your in the right spot.

    Check local laws, if its in a national forest or such. Not worth Federal court.

    Good point, generally you can't take plants out of National forest, In many places you have to purchase a permit to harvest ginsing. Check your state and federal regulations.
