Amarillidaceae from Nepal

I've had Pancratium zeylanicum for over 10 years. I assume it's somewhat related to P. verecundum since I think zeylanicum is from Ceylon, the previous name for Sri Lanka. It actually grows really great for me as a foliage plant and multiplies easily. But I have never once seen a flower or scape on it. Does anyone know how to get it to flower?
