Answer: Samanea saman or Monkeypod tree is a fairly fast growing and large tropical tree, so I am not sure how much success you would have with it in a nontropical climate, even if you grew it indoors. A greenhouse might be preferable to trying to grow it in the house.
Here are two possible sources, unfortunately I have no personal experience with either company.
Northern Oasis Tropical Seeds and Plants is in Canada but shipment can be arranged. http://www.northernoasis.com
and through Backyard Greenhouses
-- which also featured an article on growing them from seed.
