I have three Apache chilli plants in pots outside - they're covered with chillies - every flower is setting - the pots are next to the raised bed with courgettes in and the insects are fossicking every hour of daylight. They've not been watered since the weekend (although we have had a bit of rain) and they've had one small dose of tomato feed - I ignore them most of the time other than to look in amazement and wonder at the growing crop - I've not grown chillies before as my OH has only just discovered that he quite likes a little heat in his food.
I shall be needing ideas for coping with a surfeit of chillies very soon!
So, I think that, as Italophile says, you're probably being much too nice to your chillies and they feel no need to reproduce themselves
