Forest cultivated ginseng, Panax ginseng C. A. Meyer, is an important pharmaceutical plant in North Eastern Asia. The Korean peninsula is the best place to grow ginseng because the plant has stringent requirements for growth, such as high precipitation during the summer and an appropriately low minimum winter temperature. Advantageously, forest cultivated ginseng requires little maintenance. Naturally shaded, well drained soil helps ginseng grow in forest habitats. It has been shown that net photosynthetic rates of forest ginseng plants grown in mountain forests are reduced as the plant ages.
