Answer: Your amaryllis sounds fabulous! I don't think you need to worry and to be honest, I don't know of any way you can encourage that amaryllis to leaf out; amaryllis bulbs just seem to have minds of their own as you are witnessing. In my experience an individual bulb's performance can vary somewhat from year to year -- just keep it watered and fertilized per your normal routine and it will leaf out when it's good and ready. Enjoy the blooms!
