Currently, Ngoc Linh ginseng seedlings which are provided by the Quang Nam Centre for Ngoc Linh ginseng and medicinal herbs always grow well.

In order to have good ginseng seedlings, it is necessary to follow a proper procedure, from selecting seeds, treating natural humus to sowing and taking care of seedlings.

It is also important to ensure the natural environment under the canopy of the forest and its moisture.

It is difficult to take care of Ngoc Linh ginseng seedlings because they are susceptible to pests and diseases. They are examined carefully every day.

Currently, Quang Nam has issued a set of criteria for one-year-old Ngoc Linh ginseng seedlings in order to increase the quality of the ginseng seedlings.
