You should try transplanting into a container that is not much larger than the one it is in now. You will have to do this until the roots appear through the new container, and until the proper size is reached. Putting these into a container too big will lead to rotting and the death of the seedling, since there are no roots to take up all of the water through the soil.

This will be a very careful process each time, not to disturb the roots.

This article will help you once you get it into a container and it takes root: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/china-doll/radermachera-sinica.htm
