Thank You! These started growing in a flower pot I had outside. If they are plants guess I could put them in the ground and watch them grow.
Thanks to anyone with feedback on these.

Perhaps two different Amaranthus? The one with the notched leaf tips looks like Amaranthus blitum:

The other with pointy leaves may be a different Amaranthus, maybe this one, redroot pigweed, Amaranthus retroflexus:

I think the first one is a weedy Amaranthus species. Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri) looks like a good match.

I agree that Amaranthus blitum looks like a good match for the second plant.

Thanks for your help. Guess it is considered a weed so time to toss 👍 Thank You!
