Yes, these trees can be successfully grown in containers. However, it may not be necessary to move yours inside. If you have a shady location, you could simply move it there and keep it watered in hot temps at least twice a day. Indoors plants can be affected by the low humidity levels caused by air conditioning and may need to be misted on a daily basis or set on a tray of pebbles filled with water to make up for this lack of humidity. Also, it helps to keep them away from any a/c vents.
