Hello, on January 24th 2021 a couple of the leaves on my amaryllis plant were yellow so I cut them back but I accidentally nipped the healthy ones so I had to cut all of the leafs off. Will new leaves grow or is my amaryllis going to die? I still have my amaryllis inside my house right now.

It is always best to avoid cutting any living growth, at all, from an Amaryllis. This takes precious energy that is needed to survive. This is, likely, to stunt the plant.

Unfortunately, the plant will not recover unless the conditions that caused the yellowing are corrected. This could be anything from improper nutrient ratios, to drastic changes in environment.
