Question: Virginia Creeper from a window?

After spreading along a wall, can a Virginia Creeper be removed from the soil it originated in and survive?

I'm moving to a new apartment in Brooklyn, and I'm thinking about letting a Virginia Creeper loose on the building from my windows on the second floor. If I use window boxes to start it up, can I eventually remove it from the soil in the window boxes? Would it continue to live without that soil? If the answer is maybe, what does it depend on?

Thanks! Any input appreciated.
