Common Problems

Why is my Amaranthus plant not growing?
Improper growing conditions such as a growing medium deficit in nutrients or improper spacing between the plants can harm the growth of your Amaranth. Make sure you use a good growing medium when planting the seeds.
Why are my Amaranthus seedlings turning soft and wilting?
Damping off could be the reason why your seedlings are wilting. Damping off is a disease which is most severe under conditions of high moisture , overcrowding and poor ventilation. Damping off leads to wilting of seedlings and these seedlings eventually die. Spray fungicides on young seedlings to avoid damping off.
Why are my Amaranthus seedlings not germinating?
Improper growing conditions like over watering/ under watering, not enough sunlight or sowing in the seeds too deep can all affect the germination process of your amaranth seeds. Make sure you are following the sowing and growing instructions correctly to ensure successful germination.
