care after bulb stops flowering
When a bulb stops flowering, do I cut the green leaves off or leave out of water until the leaves die? I have the Christmas flower bulb out of the water but the leaves are green. Do I wait till they are dead?

Amaryllis bulbs grown in water generally cannot be forced in subsequent years so it is unlikely you will get a second wind out of them. But that doesn't mean you can't try and the following articles will assist you:
