A: Yes, your Amaryllis can bloom again with some basic care. First, after the flower has died, cut the stem within an inch of the bulb. Gradually discontinue watering the bulb as the foliage dies down. Once the leaves have died down you can put the bulb in a cool dry place or plant the bulb still in its pot outside in part shade.
If you have decided to keep your bulb in a cool dry place, replace the soil and thoroughly water once growth begins again or in late fall, whichever comes first. Water regularly and feed with a complete liquid fertilizer every 2 to 3 weeks. Your Amaryllis should bloom within 6 to 12 weeks.
If you replanted your Amaryllis outside after the holidays, they do not require much attention during the summer. Bring it inside in late fall and begin watering regularly and feeding with a complete fertilizer every 2 to 3 weeks and watch your Amaryllis bloom.
