Who says you can't fool Mother Nature? 
This is Den superbum ('Celle' x alba),
growing in water culture. Since witholding
water for the winter season to induce a
rest period wasn't an option, we instead
withheld all food and in addition put the
plant outside in temps of 35-45f in full sun.
After 6-8 treatments like this, the plant was
apparently shocked enough for it to drop it's
leaves. We resumed feeding as soon as the buds
appeared.
