That's a good idea for saving the banana trees. not all people do this, most people just leave them there and frost up, then eventually die. I hope you can maintain it inside.
Oh there's a giant community out there :)
Bananas.org has a lot of people passionate on that subject

The main thread was from a year or two ago. I've lost some but have others going strong :)

That’s dedication. My sister, lives barely north of Houston, has banana trees around her pool. She just cuts them back. They sprout back out in the spring.

Hows your bananas? are they okay? When exactly do you plan to replant then outside? are they really gonna survive out of the soil for longer?

Around this time is when I replant them, so when it's finally warm enough (May) they already have some good growth when I put them in the ground

I have already put into pots everything that survived. Some had obvious rot, so those got thrown in the woods, but most are getting back to business. The ensete maurellis really respond well to this
