This plant was, likely, forced to bloom. They will not normally bloom at this time of year. With that being said, the failure to bloom properly is more than likely due to many environmental factors at this time.

They will also bloom better the more sun that they receive. If it does not bloom by summer time, then you may need to put it in a sunnier spot, or add horticultural lighting.
