You will need to make sure that the plant has more than 12 hours of pitch black darkness every day for several weeks to a few months, then return to a longer daylight cycle. This will initiate flowering. Along with this, temperature, humidity, and water levels will need to be altered, slightly, to mimic a dormancy season.
