Here is one flowering on the patio right now. The plant blooms about as often as the other Gasteria hybrids I have.

My very small bicolor blooms on a yearly basis. Ive had mine for 5, its only produced offshoots. They are grown in the same conditions(the warty is due for a repot.

Could be insufficient light, maybe.

Dont think so. 95 percent of plants grown in same conditions dont show signs of etiolation. This plant is kind of out of reach, so its not wattered much(ergo the thin leaves).But sometimes even etiolated plants bloom, so.......

Flowering may require a significantly higher light threshold than etiolation.

Cant really say. I might move it so the sun hits it at a different angle, window is north facing. It does get a lot of direct sun in the morning and late afternoon(mostly the latter).
