If you’re interested in growing microgreens like I do, I wrote a book on it. It’s at this link at in my store: https://amzn.to/2ZZdkJb. After my Maximum Microgreens Pea Grow, this has been the most rewarding grow! I didn’t think Amaranth would take to hydroponics, but it did fantastic in hydroponic nutrient film technique (nft). I feel like the total weight is a good one too. _______________________________________

Microgreens | Amaranth (Hydroponic)

About The Author


  • Bonnie Hoke-Scedrov

    Hey Brent, would love to see a live grow packed for sale in a video. Please let us know if that will work for you. Thanks! Great video, by the way!

  • Tammy-Lynn Stewart

    I love your vids! I eat the roots in some of the microgreens I grow (only grow for me at this time, crazy amount of trouble selling anything to eat where I live)

  • Claudio J Tracchia

    Great job Brent, Have you consider to harvest all roots included do to be a medialess system, it is possible to introduce it to a market that way. Thanks for your time

  • David Langan

    Your NFT approach for this grow seems to work very well, but it requires a good bit more setup than the Kratky approach used in an earlier microgreen grow (with similar lower tray for water delivery by either approach). Did you notice any particular advantage in using the NFT versus the simpler Kratky? David from Mobile AL

    FYI: 1 Kilogram is 1000 grams so if it shows .680 Kg (as it did in video), then you have 680 grams. Big fan here!! David from Mobile AL

  • Chris Jewitt

    Always a nice job! Have you covered paper towel underneath the screen for amaranth? I bought a bunch of stuff on your shop a couple weeks ago per your FAQ video. Hope to get great grows like this too.

  • Riley Gilroy

    Why not use a filet knife to "skin" the greens off the silicon mat? im seeing a LOT of material left on the "top" side of the silpad. Have you had any success in using or finding a way to use the roots? French fried, etc?

  • Henry Withoot

    Just an idea i had, instead of the screen inside the tray.
    What about a "weaven placemat"?

    There are many variation on the market.
    I'll gues these are very easy to find.

  • Fensterfarm Greenhouse

    The winters farmers market here in Memphis is amazing Brent. I’m learning a lot about micro greens from one of the vendors there. Great deal of money to be made in that space. I may be calling you come spring time to pick your brain. I’ll be building a system to start producing them.

  • In the garden with Papa - Harold

    Good looking cropping Brent. Enjoyed all your videos this year and look forward to following along next year and learn some more gardening hydroponically.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.
