I'm letting it grow until it sprouts flowers or something. I've only just started gardening so I literally have no idea about plants lol. I will post more pics when it does something exciting. I am also going through plant list trying to find it.
I have looked at several amaranths here at DG and elsewhere, and I have a few of my own.The veination does not compare to this plant. Both are pinnate, but this plant has smaller, reticulate veins causing puckering. The Amaranth clearly does not. Sorry, but I just don't think it's an Amaranth.
And tasting unknown plants could be hazardous to your health!
They ended up growing about 40 cm tall but never sprouted flowers or anything and then died. I still have no idea what they are. I think my kids must have picked up some seeds or something whilst we were out. I always tell them to drop any plant stuff they collected in the garden.
I hope one day someone figures out what it was because it's killing me not knowing lol.
