Sometimes, a branch even produce a twin comb like the above. And at this stage they are still growing, and eventually will break the stem. The other two plants i mentioned already broke their neck and the blooms wilted. Look at those necks full of the tiny black seeds. They are ready to disperse and grow when the rains come, and with such numbers, i consider them already as weeds.
This bloom is from another side branch. It has a small neck with too fast growing comb. And there are also several small growths still growing into combs. Can you imagine what will happen to this branch!
On another note, this plant is an amaranth and the leaves and flowers are eaten in some parts of Africa, India and South America. I think i need to learn eating this as vegies so I can have use for all those seeds that will eventually sprout in our garden.
