They will need a dormancy period to flower properly. If it remains above 60 degrees in your area year round then you may need to simulate a winter by digging them up and placing them in storage to give them a rest.

This article will give you some more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/amaryllis-hippeastrum/amaryllis-bulb-storage.htm
