Ice plant blooms

I have a couple ice plants in the garden. Full sun, sandy drainable soil. The plants had blooms when I planted them more than a month ago. No blooms now but the plants are green and look healthy. How long should it take for more blooms? I always trim off the dead ones. And I did fertilize once with Sea Mate.

In order to proceed here, I had to post a photo. This one is from several yrs. ago. Where you see the dianthus is now where the ice plants are.

thanks,
Kevin

Your plants are likely working on setting roots and becoming established. This can slow the production of flowers.
Also, they need little to no fertilizer, in fact this could also inhibit flowering with too much nitrogen.
Here is a link to refresh you on the care requirements.
