Mine hasn't flowered either but I think I have them under a tree that's why. Give them full sun even in intense heat. Also keep them bone dry. Squills are in deserts and sometimes it just doesn't rain there. Too much or maybe any watering will likely cause them to not flower. My Giant Squill flowers but didn't this year. The ones from Petra Jordan haven't flowered Yet but they are in pots

I have replanted it in full sun around 2 months back.
Moreover, i broke the 14" pot half And planted it in ground.
My idea was that i will not water it from soil rather it will take up nutrition from ground.
Pot will prevent from excess water poured and roots will roam freely in ground as well.
Lets see wat happens next
