Usually, the fresh wild ginseng root weighs 1-10 grams and the dried wild ginseng root weighs 0.3-3 grams only. The Woods-grown one is typically double in size and weight than the wild ginseng. Woods-grown ginseng tends to have thicker necks, no clear markings on the main root, and more lateral roots (tails).

American wild ginseng naturally grows within 32-47.5 degrees north latitude and 74-97 degrees west longitude, in the east part of central and north US forest. It grows well at altitudes of 200-1200 meters, with 5-45 degrees slope and 5-8% sunshine, and fertile humus layer of about 8-10 inches. The loose soil of the forest is usually black and granular, where the wild ginseng grows in groups. Thus, if one wild ginseng plant is found, then more plants should be expected nearby.
