Amaryllis Bulb Care

My amaryllis has bloomed and I have cut off the flowers. What do I do with the bulb so that I can plant it next year and enjoy the many beautiful flowers again?

Cut off the entire flower stalk. Leave all the leaves intact. Keep your Amaryllis on a sunny windowsill in its existing pot. Water it only when the top half-inch of soil feels dry. Fertilizer monthly at half strength. Allow the leaves to grow through the spring and summer. In the fall, put it into dormancy by withholding all water and allowing the leaves to die back. It will need at least 8 weeks of dormancy before it will flower at the end of the year.
