Default Re: Banana spending winter indoors? Warm or cool

The only thing i take care to do, i pot them about 2 months before moving them indoor, so when i move them they are well established.
Pan --- if you plant the VC inground after last frost it should fruit. Very short cycle but not cold resistant so much.
