Red Garnet Amaranth is a thin, delicate microgreen that bursts with a robust, earthy flavor.

Its striking colors make it a great garnish or an addition to any salad.

Amaranth prefers warm growing conditions, so find a warm spot for germination and growth. A seed heating mat helps germination and speeds up maturity.

Be careful not to overwater Amaranth.

You can harvest Amaranth in the cotyledon stage or grow and harvest when true leave form.

Seeding Density

Seeding Density for Red Garnet Amaranth

By Weight

Home Microgreens Tray: 1.1 grams

1010 Tray: 2.9 grams

1020 Tray: 5.9 grams

By Measuring Spoon

Home Microgreens Tray: 0.3 teaspoons

1020 Tray: 1.4 teaspoons

All volumetric measurements are level, not heaping spoons.

These are my recommended seeding densities to produce a great-looking tray of Red Garnet Amaranth microgreens.

I like to allow microgreen leaves to develop to a larger size as they provide more nutrition & flavor than producing smaller leaves and stems.

Microgreen density depends on many environmental factors and seed germination percentages.

You may prefer to modify the seeding density, but my seeding densities are a great starting point if nothing else.

Check out the Home Microgreens Seed Density Course if you have a different size tray.


28.35 grams equals 1 ounce.

Three teaspoons equal 1 Tablespoon

Four Tablespoons equal 1/4 cup
