Eventually Amaryillis Leaves Appearing

Waiting Game Pays Off.
I planted 2 Amaryillis from Lidl at the same time neither made any move for a while and then one the poor unfortunate that went bump in the night took off and the other still hibernated. What was facinating was they both had the same conditions and then over the last week or so the one in hibernation started to look as though it might produce leaves. Today on inspection there are leaves beginning to emerge so patience has paid off. I will also be sourcing a suitable planter to make sure this one doesn't go bump in the night too.
On the question of the one that lost it's flower what treatment should it get now? I thought about trimming back the leaves and broken stem the other day but then decided against it.
