What version of Fedora?
Have you edited /etc/crypttab and /etc/fstab with appropriate entries?
If you are not being prompted during a boot for the LUKS passphrase, the
answers to the above questions are likely "No", which is why you cannot
If on F7 or F8, then /etc/crypttab should contain a line similar to the
home /dev/sda7 none luks
where in your situation, '/dev/sda7' is replaced by the proper device and
partition number for your /home partition.
Then in /etc/fstab, you should have a line similar to the following:
/dev/mapper/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2
*AND* be sure to either remove or comment out the default line in
/etc/fstab that typically looks like:
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2
