If it's only a flower that has finished, then there are leaves to come. Keep it going, watering and feeding, until the leaves have grown. You can cut off the flower stem. The bulb needs the nutrients from the leaves for flowering next year. Your bulb should be dried off in the summer - lay the pot on its side in a cool place - then repot the bulb in the autumn and start watering it again.
