Amaryllis typically sends out a flower spike in December so if yours didn't, it may need a little more light, or it may not have gone into its period of dormancy as it should. At this point, simply allow the foliage to remain on the plant. It will be busy manufacturing energy and transporting it back to the bulb. When the leaves turn yellow and die, cut them from the bulb and allow the bulb to rest in a cool location for 6 weeks. At that time bring it back into a brightly lit location and water on a regular basis. It should flower for you this coming fall or winter. Hope so!
