Just plant in woods and ignore it. If you spray it at all I understand that can be easily detected. There are pests that wipe out whole colonies making some think they have to spray it and protect it.

There is a fellow who dabbles in that around here, but I have not as yet actually seen any ginseng on our property.  If you mean plant it out in the woods and leave it alone for seven years or so, that's what I have in mind (I just have to keep that forager out of my woods!)
