Amaranth is a very small, delicate microgreen that prefers warmer growing conditions, so find a nice warm spot for germination and growing. It can also be sensitive to too much direct light. It does not grow tall, so expect very small greens that will need to be harvested close to the root line and rinsed well. It does equally well grown hydroponically or in soil. It can sometimes be a litle more challenging to grow well.
It's striking colors make at a great garnish or an addition to any micro greens salad.
