If you're worried you can pot it up and hope for the best. Even if it just grows foliage and doesn't flower this winter, the foliage will feed the bulb and give you a better chance of flowering next time. When flowers do appear on any amaryllis and finally do die back you will remove the flowering head at the top, not the bottom, to avoid having it make seeds, which uses up far too much energy for small bulbs (or any bulbs).

You've made good progress with the one that is growing and I thought you'd enjoy seeing the progress for yourself and for your mother.
