How can I get my goldfish plant to bloom?

I have a goldfish plant that has lovely orange blooms, but lately it will not bloom at all, it just grows longer and longer. What can I do to encourage it to bloom?

The usual cause for lack of bloom on a goldfish plant is light levels that are too low. Try moving it to a brighter location. Also, avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. They can promote vegetative growth at the expense of blooms.
