Red Lion Amaryllis - Knowledgebase Question

Question by Hosanna10

I was given a Red Lion Amaryllis produced from your company last year for Christmas. It was a bulb in a box. It bloomed beautifully into 8 beautiful flowers. Everyone in my office was amazed, including the co-worker who gave it to me. She said she gave several away and mine was the only one that actually lived. After a few months the flowers finally died and the leaves grew into a nice plant.

It is Christmas time again and I would love to see those beautiful flowers again. I wrote to one person who told me during the winter to wrap the plant up and place it in a dark clost until the leaves withered and in the spring bring it back out so it can bloom. My plant on the other hand had it's first bloom in the winter in January. My question to you is do I have to cut the leaves off in order to assist the flowers to bloom again? If not, what needs to be done. I couldn't bring myself to placing it in the closet because the leaves are so healthy looking and this is one project that I was successful at and very proud of.
