I have rose plant food (18-24-16). Would this be OK to feed my amaryllis?

It should be okay. The second number is phosphorus, which is good for roots (bulbs). Third number, potassium, good for flowers.

Read through our webpage on amaryllis: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/care-amaryllis-aka-hippeastrum-plants You'll see that fertilizer is important after flowering, not at this time.
