Hi Sanderson!  Glad to know the Molten Fire is doing well for you!  I've learned this past year it also does very well in here in December and makes a festive flair to holiday salads that have become my signature salad.  It includes cranberry hibiscus, and organic dried cranberries. 

On another note. I've been having trouble with using my phone on this forum.  I've been trying different browsers but they all keep logging me out. I'll get this figured out.  Very Happy

My Amaranth Dreadlocks indoor sown seedlings are really tiny and scrawny looking. I'm afraid they will disappear if I plant them out in the garden. Guess I have to give them a chance but I'll wait until the beginning of June.

I LOVE these plants. The slightest breeze sends the leaves "quaking" like aspen. My plants aren't very big, but one of them is blooming already. Beautiful!

I read that the leaves are edible and good in salads but I'm not sure I can do that. The plants are so pretty I don't think I can eat them. Maybe when they get bigger and I have enough leaves they'll never miss a few. Rolling Eyes

has anyone in the south try to grow this plant? If so, what do you do to prevent it from becoming an aggressive weed?

Dstack in FL grows it. Maybe he will comment. I think staking would help, and if you don't want volunteers, remove when it starts to drop seeds. ??

This year I planted Amaranth.  The biggest one is about 8 inches now.  When can I harvest for leaves?

I would wait a little more until they have leaves to spare. Some of them look like they still need the ones they have.
