This might be useful. Common sense would say feed the plant with feed with high potash such as tomorite to encourage flowering. (Look for NPK - the P number should be a bit higher than the others) And after that, when they have flowers, you need to pollinate the flowers by hand if they are grown in green house.

To see the difference between the sexes of flowers, please see

Hope it helps.

You say the plant is 4 ft. tall. How OLD is the plant, what kind and how much fertilizer was used. Are there any yellow leaves and if so where on the plant are they?
