This plant can be grown inside the house during winter if you provide strong light - similar to 500Wt High pressure sodium lamp 12 hours a day 2-3 feet away.
You will receive one tree planted in small plastic pot in soil. Starter plant is about 1-4 inches or bigger.

Keep in the shade, water moderate, do not over water it.
For shipping purposes big leaves might be trimmed or partially removed to conserve water consumption during shipping to your address. New leaves will grow in no time.
