Title: The effects of plant age and flower bud removal on ginseng leaf characteristics
Author: Proctor, J.T.A.; Sullivan, J.A.; Rupasinghe, H.P.V.; Jackson, C.C.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: In 4-year-old ginseng plants, removing flower buds increased leaf weight (fresh and dry), area, mass, volume, and thickness, and decreased leaf thickness. Removing flower buds did not affect ginsenoside levels. Although a shade plant, ginseng plants had leaf characteristics associated with a sunny habitat.
