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.
