Answer: Very strange. That plant blooms in response to short daylength. This year around Haloween start covering it from light exposure at 5 pm every day and uncovering it in the morning. Do this for a few weeks and it should initiate bloom buds. Keep the soil evenly moist and fertilize lightly on a regular basis with a liquid plant food at the low constant feed label rate.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
