Yes, you can, but I imagine it won't do too well.

Cardamondins  grow very well on their own roots.

I have to agree. I recall hearing the most suitable & resistent Citrus rootstock(s) are Rangpur Citrus x limonia followed by Seville C. x aurantium, but this can vary between what cultivars are available to you, and what the end goal is. Is it safe to say Rangpur and Calamondin are both true to seed?
