Ohh.. dont give epsom salt, keep in filtered light... it is a dwarf form so dont expect to grow tall... pinch the tips to make it bushy... you can take cuttings also to make new plants... it become dormant by November...

Obviously you want to grow the plant in the pot. I would have supported three strongest growing branches on stakes and let it grow as it is till spring. Hanging branches on a raised pot look nice.

You want it to look some thing like this, the follow what I SAID BEFORE.
SELECT THREE STRONGEST BRANCHES AND STAKE THEM TOGETHER, REMOVE EVERY GROWTH EXCEPT THAT ON THESE THREE STEMS.
