As a gardening enthusiast, I’d love to grow every possible plant in my garden, whether its herbs, vegetables, flowering shrubs, ornamental plants or trees. I want it all. But if you are a beginner, taking your first steps to setting up your terrace garden, you’ll have to pick and choose which plants are worth growing. 

Some greens you buy from shops can be grown very easily.

    Now, let's come to our topic. Today I'm going to experiment planting Tropical amaranth. I just bought a bunch of the vegetable from market today. After pluck them separate the green and stem, root or the seed accordingly for planting and cooking. 

    As shown in the picture above, prepare the pot with potting mix, sow the root with stems. And seeds(on right side in plastic which is plucked from the leaves) mixed with sand, pour water gently and cover the seeds with some more potting mix.


    You can also just sow the seeds of Tropical amaranth in the mud pot. Just press the seeds inside the mud. It need not be deep. After this, sprinkle some water. You should not pour water till the seed grow to at least 2 inches.The seeds should not be exposed under direct sun light. On the other hand, you can plant the stem with roots or just the stems for this Tropical amaranth. Many greens are "cut and come again" so harvest the greens, leave the roots and keep watering and they will sprout another set of greens.
