How to Plant Amaranth Amaranth plants grow well in average to rich, well-draining soil with equal amounts of nitrogen and phosphorus. Like many vegetable crops, they need at least five hours of sunlight a day to do well. While they grows best in moist but well drained soil, they will tolerate somewhat dry soil too. Once the amaranth seeds have sprouted, they should be thinned to about 18 inches (46 cm.) apart.
