What are the pros? Strikingly Beautiful

What are the cons? Dismal direct sow germination

Review:

Planted seeds alongside Indian Glass Corn from Bakers. Corn did great while amaranth germination rate was really low - maybe 1 in 10. Only 1 sprout survived to maturity, but it was incredibly tall, strong, and beautiful. Tried seeds from the same packet as microgreens and had no problem with germination rate then. Will try starting the seeds indoors and then transplanting outside in early Summer. Really not sure why the direct sowing didn't work. I'm still somewhat of a gardening newbie.
