Every year I let them go to seed.  They fall over and I get more plants the 
next year.  It does take a couple of years before they get to blooming size.  
My bed of Amaryllis is needing some dividing.  I plan to take them to the 
nursing homes that my Mother and Mother-in-law currently reside in.  Course 
they grow in my garden, not in pots, as they are hardy here in FL.
