Default Musella Lasiocarpa Delimma

Ok, so I have this clump of musella planted at work. The largest stem is about to flower. The flower is barely showing from the pseudostem. This is the first flower in 4 years. Our area is going to have frost on Friday morning possibly. I would like to enjoy the bloom. I can't provide protection for the plant. Would it be too late to divide the clump and pot the largest stem to bring indoors? Should I just leave it and hope for a mild winter and wish for the bloom to open in the spring? What would you recommend banana experts? Thanks!
