Pachypodium question

Post  Precarious on Sat Jan 03, 2015 4:07 am

I was haunting ye olde plant rescue once again, and found what I'm certain is a Kudu Lily, same as the one I already have.  It's about 6 inches tall with a caudex already about the size of ping pong ball.  This plant was devoid of leaves at the time (november), but otherwise looked very healthy.  Not sure of it's soil, I took the liberty of repotting.  I watered once, two weeks later at the beginning of December.  Now it is starting to leaf out, and I am not sure whether to try to send it back to hibernation or let it grow.  Any thoughts which way to go?  And if the consensus is induce hibernation, how?  Just withhold water?  Shorten the exposure to bright light each day?

I keep it with my tropicals in 65-75F(18-24C), 50-60% humidity, T5 grow lights.  BTW, the KL I have already been growing has been slowly losing leaves, but still a few at the tips.
