Q.How Much Bone Meal Per Non Flowering Watermelon Plant?

We are using blk plastic in the garden and have about 15 watermelon plants growning spaced about 6 ft. apart. We had some heavy rains right after they were planted. Some have taken off and some not. The plants with vines that are 3-4 ft. long are not flowering. I have read to add bone meal, how much per plant?
