These can be bought cheaply on Ebay:

Uniconazolel 15g 95% Plant Growth Regulator | eBay

Paclobutrazol (PBZ) 10g 95% Plant Hormone Plant Growth PGR | eBay

These quantities are enough to treat thousands of potted plants.

With a sufficiently shortened pseudostem, a banana plant will not fold over in the wind and rain even after it has grown indoors.
Thanks....for the cool info....
Your input is appreciated..
