A water issue can cause Red Hot Poker to under perform. Lack of water when the bloom is forming is usually the culprit. However, it sounds as if you are getting enough water.
Temperature could be another factor. If your area is below normal temps or the temperatures got too high too soon, the blooming schedule would be thrown out of whack.
Lack of light can also cause insufficient or lack of blooms in Red Hot Poker. If your area has become shadier than it has been in the past, you will need to move your plants.
