|Description||Choose a site in full sun with good drainage.. Globe amaranth plants will grow in almost any soil type except alkaline. Globe amaranth performs best in garden soil, but you can also put them in containers. Space plants 12 to 18 inches (31-46 cm.) Apart and keep them moderately moist. Globe amaranth can tolerate periods of dryness, but they perform best with even moisture.Always aim the hose or watering can at the soil, not the leaves, to inhibit fungal growth.|
When you see the first flower buds forming, you can pinch them off to encourage bushier growth. Leggy plants may require staking.
Throughout the growing season, periodically deadheading or cutting flowers for arranging serves not only to inhibit leggy growth, but to encourage further blooming.For best results, cut a portion of a stem, not just a flower head, at a point where it meets another stem, or where two leaves meet.
