    This can happen if the plant does not get a dormancy each year. They require dormancy to properly flower the next season. First you should expose them to cool tempuratures, and less light than normal. This will force them into dormancy. This link will guide you through the process of bringing them into a dormant state so that you may have flowers next year: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/amaryllis-hippeastrum/amaryllis-bulb-storage.htm
