After my gift amaryllis bloom died, I cut off the stem. There are three leaves and two don't stand up straight. It is in an east window. Is this normal?

From what little I know about the amaryllis yes this is normal they will either do this or they will turn brown and die off until next year.

Yes, it is normal-but I do think it needs more sun to develop for next year. As soon as possible, you should put it outside in full sun. I would pot it in a pot 2 sizes larger to carry over-or in the ground if you are in zone 7 or higher.

Thank you both for the advice, since I'm in Zone 5 outdoors won't work.
