Cold 2 months since planted - Brazilian Banana Prata

Dear all,

I would like to kindly ask your assistance/opinion.
I have planted a Brazilian Banana Prata (Dwarf Brazilian ?) rhizome in August 29th. I am located in Milan, Italy.
After about 5 weeks, it has sprouted (still outdoor). I have taken it inside about 2 weeks ago, because the temperature has dropped.
But, as you can see in the images in the gallery (October 29th) it is not growing any further.
Can you please take a look of the pics and let me know what you think? What do you think should I do?

Thank you in advance

Lorenzo

If the plant experiences prolonged temperatures below 10 C, it slows or stops growth completely. Be sure it has plenty of sunlight.

Check the holes at the bottom of the container. Do not water the plant until the soil is less than moist, but also do not let the soil dry out. A soggy plant will rot, and a dry plant will die of thirst.

Thanks Richard!!
As you can see from the pics, it is in front of a window, so it catches quite a lot of sunlight. The temperature never goes under 18/20 °C. I have also added a special fabric around the vase (you can see it in the pics - the white one) in order to keep the roots warm....do you think is useless?
I don't know, but I thought that once it has sprouted, it would have taken few weeks only to see the first "real" leaf...
