I know here we go again. But I got in my seed exchange from the fall fling and I need to find out the watering requirements for these seeds so I know which ones to keep and which ones to trade. It's going pretty good so far.

Amaranth has regular water requirements. Mine have done well with no extra water at all...just rainfall. The seeds need to be started very early indoors to get large plants by summer.

I only got water once a month last summer. And I have to hand carry water out to the garden. So, since I plan to increase the size of the garden to at least double what it currently is I need to have drought tolerant plants. I think I'll put the Amaranth in the Seed exchange. thank you for taking all this time to answer my questions.
