Crinodendron in a pot?

Hi
My husband has just purchased a Crinodendron. After a bit of research it seems it prefers acidic soil. Therefore can I plant this in a large pot? If Yes can you advise on how to go about it? Thanks.

    I have one in a pot, had it for years. Don't let it dry out completely, give it ericaceous feed occasionally, water it with rain water if possible. I didn't feed it for the first few years and it was fine, but once I started I really noticed the difference, and felt very bad about my previous neglect!
    Other than that, no tips.

    Thanks for that. Very useful info. Two more things, What size pot do you have and Shall I plant it in eracacious compost to start off with?
    thanks

    Yes, I planted it in ericaceous compost, probably mixed with some garden soil (it was some time ago when I last did it). It's in too small a pot and I'm about to move it to a bigger one. The one it's currently in is probably about 12-15" diameter.
