Choose a good location in which to plant quinoa that has a temperature between 59 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit, although the plants can survive in temperatures as low as 17 degrees Fahrenheit. The area needs to have high sun exposure.
Use soil that is well-drained and loamy. It needs to be rich in organic material. Make sure the soil has a pH between 4.5 and 9.0.
Add compost to the soil before planting.
Plant the seeds three months after composting the soil.
Fertilize the plants twice a year. Add fertilizer for the first time immediately after planting the seeds. Add the second round a month later.
Although many types of quinoa are adapted to desert environments, make sure to water the plants lightly and regularly.
Remove weeds from among the plants a month after the first planting. Remove weeds again a month later.
