Flytrap,
First off, welcome to the forum. There is a lot of great information throughout this board and with a little digging you can find out anything you need to know. As far as overwintering bananas in your basement, here is a link to an awesome thread creating by one of our leading experts on the subject. I trust you will find this very helpful.
Best of luck,
Randy4ut

Time to put the bananas to sleep for the Winter
