It will take about 10 years for your dwarf cryptomeria to reach full size. A 24" tall container is likely to be too small at maturity but you can plant them in your containers for now, expecting to bump them up to a 4' tall container in 5-6 years. For stability, especially with a dense grower like cryptomeria, you'll want the container to be at least one-third as deep as the plant is tall.
