Where To Plant: Amaranth plants grow well richly sunlight, in it needs at least five hours of sunlight a day to do well. While it grows best in moist but well drained soil, it will tolerate somewhat dry soil too.

When To Plant: Amaranth germinates best at soil temperatures around 68 degrees , it’s best to wait until mid- to late-spring to plant. The crop is also intolerant of frosts, so wait until well after the danger of frost has passed.

How To Plant: Scatter the seeds similar to spinach in the container. Cover the seed with soil for about three times the size of the seed. Since the Amaranth seed is just a tiny dot, you would need a very thin layer of soil. Sowing to harvest time is again just 30 days.
