I have had my yucca plant for over five years and it only bloomed the second year. What do you suggest I am doing wrong?

I don't think you're doing anything wrong. It is quite common for yuccas to bloom inconsistently. Therefore, it is hard to say how often it will bloom because of this. It is just a waiting game and there is not much that can be done to make them bloom. That said, you could try inducing blooms by adding phosphorus, such as bone meal, to the soil around your plants.
