I think you cut back the foliage too soon. You should wait until it starts to yellow. Blooming takes a lot out of a bulb and having that time with intact leaves after flowering helps to rebuild the bulb. So it may just be too depleted to bloom right now. Whether it will bloom in a month or more is hard to predict. Here is an article on amaryllis care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/amaryllis-hippeastrum/amaryllis-care-instructions-how-to-care-for-an-amaryllis.htm
