With high levels of vitamins A, C, E, and K, plus calcium, magnesium, and iron, amaranth microgreens add a substantial nutritional boost to any meal. Growing them is an effective way to enjoy the benefits of this ancient grain.


Spread amaranth microgreens seeds thickly over 1/2-1 inch of moist potting mix in a well-draining shallow container. The container should be about 5 inches by 5 inches in size. Press seeds in firmly. Mist with water and cover to block out any light. Place the container in a completely dark space. Keep covered and in darkness for 5-6 days. Mist when needed to keep the seeds moist. When microgreens begin to lift the cover (1-2 inches of growth), expose them to direct light. Harvest with scissors in 8-12 days


Amaranth microgreens grow fast. They require regular misting from planting to harvest. Adequate light is crucial. It prevents the shoots from becoming leggy and promotes healthy growth. Harvest amaranth microgreens when they are about 2 to 3 inches in height. Cut them just above the soil line. To maximize amaranth microgreens benefits, use them immediately after harvest.

Growing amaranth microgreens at home is a rewarding process. It provides a steady supply of fresh, tiny greens. Whichever way you choose to consume them, they will be a tasty addition to your healthy lifestyle.


How to Grow Microgreens

The general process of growing microgreens is fairly simple. The steps are as follows:

  1. Pre-soak seeds as specified on the packet
  2. Sprinkle seeds over a tray with a 1/2" to 1" layer of moist potting mix. Press into the soil to ensure good contact.
  3. Mist seeds with a spray bottle and cover to maintain moisture and block out light.
  4. Keep seeds covered for the blackout period. Setting the tray inside a cupboard works well. Check seeds during the blackout period and mist as needed to keep seeds moist.
  5. When the microgreens are a few inches tall or begin to live the cover, expose
    them to light, allowing the seedlings to develop and grow.
  6. When microgreens look ready, harvest with a pair of scissors and enjoy!
