I planted 1 bulb many years ago, has divided to about 25 and have that many blooms. This year 2 blooms, maybe too hot or not enough water, but I would like to seperate them. When is a good time to transplant and seperte bulbs exactly? Thank you

Wait until the foliage dies back, then dig and divide your amaryllis. I expect if the foliage has not already begun to turn yellow and die, it will very soon. When it does, dig and transplant and water them in well.
