Usually plants fails to flower because they're not getting enough light. Also it could be that the plants bulbs are producing offsets and they're not mature enough to flower yet.

Sometimes bulbs can go "blind" which means no matter what you do they will never flower, this is common with Daffodils.

These like a lot of water and can be grown on the margin of a pond. Stand the pot in a tray of water in spring/summer and feed it.
