Hello vege growers

I am trying to grow vegetables...
I found these seeds - Chye Sim, Red Amaranth (yin choy with the red streaks on the leaf) and Chinese Mustard (gai choy, kiam chye vege).

The red amaranth and chinese mustard seeds have germinated. I'm wondering if I will get to harvest.
Has anyone been successful growing these in soil?
I am also looking for pakchoy/siao baicai seeds - where can I find them?
It appears to me that Singapore now mostly stocks the China seeds. Only Homefix DIY that I know has seeds from other brands/sources.

thanks for any advice!

Thank you all.
Have had a few harvests already. I don't know when to harvest so the stems are not hard.
Now I only eat leaves - stems too hard.

I just removed all to restart a new batch....

Hi guys,

I am currently growing both Red Amaranth (slightly fat and spade-shaped leaves with red-purple near the veins) and Green Amaranth (long pointy leaves)

In my experience, both tend to bolt , flower and seed very fast...

So I have more seeds than leaves to harvest... lol.

I guess our condition here is just too hot.. =p
