Clearance Amaryllis

I picked up two Amaryllis bulbs while after-Christmas shopping. One bulb is 'Minerva' and the other is 'Appleblossom'. I haven't grown an Amaryllis in probably 10-15 years, so hopefully I'll be successful. If I remember correctly, they initially grow and flower just fine, but keeping them alive afterwards (or getting them to re-flower) can be tricky.

Any suggestions on getting these to re-bloom?

Amaryllis Appleblossom (L) and Minerva (R)

The roots on the Appleblossom bulb are much more plump and healthy looking than the Minerva bulb. It will be interesting to see how they perform.
