Sorry to jump in late, but I would consider repotting it or top-dressing it this spring.

If you want to keep it in the same pot, pull out the whole root bulb and such and wash it off with water.

With sharp scissors cut off 2 inches of the rootbulb all the way around.

Put new fresh soild and compost and such (not too heavy, add some perlite to a ration of 1/3 compost, 1/3 black earth, 1/3 perlite), add the roots back in, the top with more fresh soil. Water deeply until water comes out the bottom of the pot.

If you have Super Thrive there, add a few drops to the water to help with transplant shock.

Make sure you water once a week with a 10-50-10 fertilizer (or numbers close to that) and you should get blooms this year.
