I would not try to work on it in winter. Unless you are growing in a greenhouse. Put it outside for the summer, and after it is in vigorous growth, and looking bushy, only then would I prune, or wire, or repot.

I would agree with Leo, for the most part. I've been growing a jaboticaba for about 4 or 5 years now. It's outside during the summer; in winter I keep it under very bright grow lights (400 W metal halide) and it usually produces 1 - 2 strong growth flushes while inside...so I'm able to do some wiring and pruning. This particular specimen looks young-ish and is not overly vigorous so I'd be a little more careful. I think you could go ahead and wire the main branches/trunks but I wouldn't do much more until it shows signs of stronger growth.

Repotting I generally do during the warmest part of summer, that is what is typically recommended for tropical species. I will say, though, that I acquired mine during a fall workshop (September or October)...during that workshop we really brutalized the trees, cutting them way back, wiring and repotting all in a 3 hour workshop. Tree recovered without any problems and produced very strong growth...but again, I had it under good lighting.

What kind of conditions are you providing? What is the light source, how much sun, etc?
