I would like to care for them inside before setting them out next spring.

This will be quite easily done indoors. Make sure that you mist this once in the morning, or every other day. This will help it to retain leaves that it would normally lose in response to the lack of humidity indoors. Make sure this sits in a southern facing window, or one that would otherwise receive light all day if possible. Make sure to only water when the potting medium is almost completely dry, but don't let it dry out completely.

Otherwise, the care will not be difficult. The hardest part is watering correctly, which can be done easily as long as you water when it is almost dry each time.
