What species is this again?

Generally, I would say this is too small to bloom. You'll probably need at least a few more mature growths before you see flowers. Plant looks good!

Ya, I don't believe I've ever seen a "small" plant blooming. Might take a few years.

Back to my original question. What's the definition of small versus mature.

No such thing! I've only seen this species blooming in 4" baskets that are overflowing with large bulbs.

So, I'll have to wait a few more years...
Fortunately, I also love its leaves.

It's age ... I will try to answer.

(a) The dark-green leaf is fully grown, it is an adult.
(b) The light-green leaf is juvenile. It will grow larger still and then form a bulb.
(c) The shoot is, so to speak, a 'baby' ...

You might want to give your plant much fertilizer now.
Dissolve 150 ppm in good water and spray on the compost every day.
