I don't think you should dig it out! Amaryllis plants remain leafy green and bloom once or twice a year. Now that you have taken it out, I guess you should plant it back after a week or two? Perhaps members can advise better.

Your Amaryllis would do better without your help. Do not dig the others if any. Plant it NOW in a 8-10 inch pot having well drained moist soil having 50% coarse sand, half of bulb should be above ground. Do not water until the growth starts. use fertiliser after reasonable growth, keep feeding monthly and do not disturb for the next three years. Do show when it blooms.
