the pot/saucer combo with the wick sounds okay. they can will probably start blooming if they get some direct sunlight.
before i had a plant stand with a light, my av's always did well in a west-facing window. any other spot, or one without direct light, and they'd grow new leaves but never bloom.
then i moved into that one apt...only place to put the plants was this one window (facing west) that darn av!! i'd had for years & it never bloomed (after the initial blooms when i got it). that thing became a bloomin' fool!!
try some more sunlight...make the change gradually over the course of a couple of weeks and see how it does. let me know, too! :wink:
