These plants are notorious for being temperamental when it comes to flowering. They will readily flower for months and then just stop, with no scientific reason for this behavior. It may have a lack of phosphorus, which helps encourage flowering. Since a little extra phosphorus will not hurt, I would give the plants some phosphorus, like bone meal, just to make sure that all the bases are covered.
