Another question on gardening. Amaryllis

I have a question regarding forcing Amaryllis bulbs.  No matter where I have lived nor what source I used to purchase Amaryllis for forcing at Christmas, the leaves and stalk always have an orangish-red fungus(?) appear.  This unknown disease spreads, causing splits to appear in the leaves and stalk.  Frequently the leaves and stalks break.  What is this?  I was told to dip the bulbs in a weak Clorox solution prior to planting, the problem still flared up.  No matter whether they are inexpensive or costly, this always happens.  Help.  What do I do?
