Q.I’ve Had A Purple False Shamrock As A Houseplant For 3 Years, But It’s Never Bloomed. Why?

My apartment gets very little sun, so I have my False Shamrock in the window that gets maybe an hour of morning sun. Is that enough? I’ve had my plant for 3-4 years and it’s never bloomed, let alone grown flower buds. Although I think the plant is pretty without flowers, I’d still like to see it in bloom. Do you have any advice? Thank you!
