This plant has been with me for the most of the winter. Offered off of amazon, it came in poor health. It has made little progress and flowered only once. what can i do to make it bush out this season

It looks in good health you must be doing something right. Maybe start transitioning to a bit strong light? If you can get it eventually outside for the summer i'm sure it'll blow up with new growth for you.

Teen,
You're gonna need a few more stems to truly get a bushy appearance on this. I keep chopping off stems with two sets of leaves, leaving one on and tearing off the lower two to propagate, and sticking it into the soil next to it until it begins to look bushy. They propagate really easily if kept moist enough.

Mine is just about to bloom this year.
Just snapped this for you:
