How do I care for my amaryllis now that it has stopped flowering?

Immediately after flowering remove the flower stem by cutting it back as low as possible. Once the foliage starts to turn yellow in late summer reduce the amount of water applied, stop feeding and keep dry for three months, while the bulb is dormant. Remove the dead foliage and maintain a minimum temperature of 12°c (54°F).

Before growth restarts remove the top 2.5cm (1") of compost , replacing with fresh potting compost.
Amaryllis dislike root disturbance and should only repotted every 3-4 years when the bulb becomes to large for the pot.
