I planted my amaryllis bulb around thanksgiving. The leaves have grown to around 3’ y’all, but it has never bloomed. I get these every year and this is the first time that it hasn’t bloomed. Did I do something wrong or should I keep waiting? One of the leaves has already turned yellow. Any suggestions

Unless you are forcing them from very specific conditions, then you may be waiting up to three years for a bloom, depending on the age of the bulb, and how the company before treated it. It will flower in its own time. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/amaryllis-hippeastrum/amaryllis-care-instructions-how-to-care-for-an-amaryllis.htm
