No flowers on african violets

My African violet has lots of green leaves but has not flowered for 2 years what can I do to get it to flower?

African violets will grow in medium light but need bright light to bloom. Put your violet near a window with a bright eastern or southern exposure. Also, fertilize once a month with a liquid fertilizer specifically formulated for African violets. That's all it takes--your plant will reward you with blooms!
