Amaryllis ?

Beachwood, OH

I know you're supposed to let amaryllis go dormant after the summer but this years continuous rain apparently encouraged mine
to keep going. I get them in the winter and set them on the deck every year - with incredible neglect they come right back and bloom again. Normally they just go dormant by themselves, but not this year. So... now that it is sprouting off the mother bulb and
has 2 flower stalks coming, do I feed it, just water, remove the bulblet apart after it blooms?
Anybody else keep their amaryllis year after year?
amaryllis keep my interest in gardening going - really amazed at how well they do with so little care
