    $800-$1000 a pound

    the way i see it each plant is 1-2 ounces
    say 8-16 plants = 1 pound

    You're not hunting anything without a gun or a bow, faggot. You're going on a goddamn nature walk.

    where does the ginseng grow? if you decide to search for it in NJ you're probably not going to find anything. you have to go to hillbilly land, and they defend their hunting grounds.

    It generally likes moist rich woods, bit I've found it on some drier hillsides. Most anyone who does know specific locations where it grows won't reveal their locations because they're afraid of "collectors" removing it all for profit. As you can see from the listing in the link, in many states where it occurs, it's considered a "protected" species and you may need a state or federal permit to harvest.
