Baobabs go dormant in the dry season in their home environment. This means that it will go dormant, over time if you don't water it.
When young their trunk is not developed enough to support dormancy so I would suggest not letting it go dry for at least 2 or 3 years. I will wait even longer with mine, until I feel it's able to handle a 3 month rest.
I'm still learning about this tree but this is the plan currently.
