Definitely over analysing. All the same batch from the same field and grower. Once into their regular cycle they should flower relaibly every year. Any bulb which is harvested and then cleaned and dried for shipping,cooled then kept in a stock can become confused about when it should flower. In the spring turn off the water and allow to become naturally dormant. When it is started back into life again in the fall by water and lower night temperatures it will spout quickly and flower in 4-6 weeks.
