Why is my fimplicit plot empty?

syms x(t)
ode45 = diff(x,t,2) + ((4.2/(t + 3))/2)*x == 0;
Dx = diff(x);
DDx = diff(Dx);
cond1 = x(0) == 0;
cond2 = Dx(0) == 5;
conds = [cond1 cond2];
xSol = dsolve(ode45,conds);
fimplicit (@(t) xSol(t),[-20 20 -20 20])
xlim([-10 10]);
ylim([-10 10]);
grid on;
I am trying to plot this equation, the plot opens up but its all empty.
Warnings: Unable to find explicit solution.
> In dsolve (line 201)
In test (line 12)

The warning means, that Matlab did not find an analytical solution - solve numeric:
syms x(t) Dxt(t)
ode = diff(x,t,2) + ((4.2/(t + 3))/2)*x == 0;
[ode, vars] = reduceDifferentialOrder(ode, x);
[V, S] = odeToVectorField(ode);
fun = matlabFunction(V,'Vars',{'t','Y'});
[t, xSol] = ode45(fun,[0 200],[0 5]);
plot(t,xSol)
grid on;

One more thing, does the orange curve show the derivate of the blu function?
Thank you for the help!

Yes, the order of the variables is saved in vector S. in this order Y[1] and Y[2] are saved in the functionHandle.
