I've got three Stephanotis plants that I started from seed, the oldest being 5 years old and as of yet none have bloomed. I've been using Green Light 12-55-6 bloom fertilizer for about a year with no results. It's growing up a trellis that sits in the south east corner of the living room between two sliding glass doors. Not in direct sunlight but still in bright conditions-maybe not bright enough. Any thoughts?

Thank you very much,

Plants that are started from seed often take much longer before they are mature enough to bloom. It may be that you just have to be a little more patient.
It sounds like they are getting enough light. They like as much bright light as possible without being in direct sun. They also like high humidity during the growing season.
You should also try to provide them with a winter rest period with less watering and nighttime temperatures on the cool side (around 55 degrees). This rest period may give them a better chance of blooming.
