Paperwhite, botanical name Narcissus papyraceus, is hardy in zones 7 to 10, so you can move them outside. This might help a lot since having more light encourages many flowers to bloom. Check this article for other reasons why you might not see blooms:

If it has already bloomed once, see this article:
