If you received an amaryllis for the holidays, here's how to encourage it to re-bloom next year. Keep the plant in a bright spot and water it when the soil feels dry. After all danger of frost has passed, plant it outdoors in a partially shaded location. Before the first frost in autumn, pot up the plant and move it back indoors. Cut off the dead foliage and stop watering it. (Many gardeners put it in a dark spot, such as a closet, so as not to look at a barren pot.) After a while, the plant should start to send up new growth. Once it does, resume watering and move it to a bright spot. The plant should bloom again.
