I have some tropical tree seeds I want to try growing and I have a question, I know the tree is tropical and needs to be brought indoors in winter, (Im growing it in a pot.) My question is, how do I keep a tree in a pot small enough to bring indoors when the weather is cold? I did some research on the internet and this type of tree, a STARFRUIT tree, can be grown in a pot, I just need to know how to keep it small without killing it.

Has anyone on the forum grown these before?

Usually container grown trees are kept somewhat manageable in size through root pruning or by keeping them root bound. I think these links may be helpful to you.
