Growing Facts

Hong Kong Warm Growing Season (May-August)

 

At least 6 hours of sunlight daily

Amaranth is a tropical plant and thrives with full sun

Moderate amount of water

Amaranth is relatively drought tolerant and too much water may cause the root to rot

 

 Plant in a container that is at least 6 inches to 1 foot in depth 

Space the seedlings thinly 12-15 seeds per foot apart, in rows 12-18 inches apart

(This will encourage thickly developed plants. Closer spacing results in smaller heads, which may be preferable for small families)

Fun Facts
Try adding bio enzyme to the water to help with any pests and also to increase growth
The serving of 100 gm of amaranth leaves offers 23 calories. Low content of fat and cholesterol makes it suitable for those who are concerned with reducing weight.
生長說明

夏季生長期 (5月至8月)

 

每天少6個小時的日照

紅莧是一種熱帶植物,在充滿陽光的情況下比更易茁壯成長

澆水量:適量

紅莧相對耐旱,過多的水份可能令到根部腐爛

 

 種植容器至少有6英寸至1英尺深度

種植時,把每尺12-15粒每日種子淺地放於泥土,每行相距12-18寸

(這樣種的話莧菜會更茁壯; 相反,行距愈近的話會令到莧菜愈小棵,比較合適小家庭。)

趣聞
