There is no such thing as a Indoor banana tree. Anything that you read from the site that your buying from is mostly geared to just getting your $$$$.
The plant you want does not do well indoors year round.
Go ahead and get it but keep it outside for as long as you can.
Also these plants do much better outdoors...and then bring it in for the winter and set it by a bright light source.
Usually the plant that you buy is fresh out of a green house and looks very nice for 30-90 days and its health will usually start to decline thereafter.
But if you really want it go for it.
