only thing i'll say is remember, it's a tree, and it'll be F***ing huge. if the viv is massive/big enough. why not? i know fruit tree's are safe for reps so...

Lets go wit no lol. UNless you have a massive viv that allows room for the root structure needed, and the height for growth.

I've youve got a viv that about 16foot square, go for it, it would look fantastic, but if not, dont do it lol.

thinking out loud here but if you restrict the growth of the roots would that not restrict the overall growth of the tree
