The way the leafs yellow let me think it's stem rot :-(
Is it possible that during watering water could accumulate in the leaf axles? Do the roots get bad close to the stem at first?

I think that you are right when you think they need several years to bloom. I guess it might be even longer than 3-4 years. How are the roots? Do they turn green when you soak them?
